ANSWERS

A1. When you meet someone new that you never met before, you say: a) Hi or Hello, ini adalah sapaan yang sopan

Fellas can also say ‘Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening’ also you can then say ‘How do you do’ or ‘Hi, how do you do?’

Sebenarnya ‘How do you do?’ artinya tidak beda jauh dengan ‘How are you?’ = Apa kabar? namun di tingkat kesopanan How do you do spertinya lebih sopan dan biasanya ditanyakan kepada yang jabatannya tinggi, seperti kpd kluarga kerajaan

Note: for A1, How are you? can also be followed after Hi/Hello/greeting based on time, it’s always best to start with a greeting

A2. a) State your name is the way to introduce yourself at first, with that the person knows your name and might want to share his/her name too to you and so you both will start to know each other

A3. Of course, if he/she didn’t mention their name, you can always state your name and follow it by saying B) what’s your name?

Caranya: My name is _(namamu)__. What’s your name? = Nama saya ___. Siapa namamu?

A4. To know the person more, it is good to know where they came from so C) Ask origin would be a good one

It is not nice if you ask address or phone number straight away to a person you just knew, so try to avoid it in the beginning

A5. If you don’t agree on something, you can say B) I don’t think so yang artinya = Saya kira/pikir bukan begitu.

A6. If you don’t understand something the person says, it’s okay :) you can always say c) Sorry, I didn’t understand that. Setelah itu bisa ditanyakan dengan ‘Can you explain it to me?’ – Bisa jelaskan ke saya?

A7. If you had to leave including in the middle of conversation, it will be nice if you b) say ‘Sorry, I have to go now, if you don’t mind?’ so the person knows and admin is sure he/she will understand better

Well done fellas! You have done really great! Seemed most of you know well this part of conversations :)
