Happy Saturday fellas :)
So, here’s a question, would you listen and read to any #EngVocab that you hear or see anywhere you go?
Well, bukan maksudnya nguping, hehe, tapi buat belajar, would you do it?
“@paopao1712: I read”
“@afsharry: yes i would, sometimes it help me a lot with the pronounciation~”
See if you can guess what the next five #EngVocab means which I found on a train journey :)
1. The #EngVocab is “a bite”, e.g. “Would you like to grab a bite when we got there?” What does “a bite” mean?
PS: You can answer in English or in Indonesian, best answers get an RT :)
2. The #EngVocab is “Arrangement”, e.g. “She makes this last minute arrangement that is hard to follow.” What does “arrangement” mean?
3. The #EngVocab is “needy”, e.g. “He can be so needy sometimes.” What does “needy” mean?
4. The #EngVocab is “service”, e.g. “This is the Southern service to London Bridge.” What does the word “service” mean?
5. The #EngVocab is “expected”, e.g. “The train is expected to arrive in 2 minutes.” What does “expected” mean?
So, can you guess what their meanings are? Can’t wait for your answers! :D
Right, I will share your answers now :) Readyy?
“A bite” could be to “@paopao1712: eat (or a) small meal”
“@zRaddina: a bite = berenti bentar buat makan/ngisi perut/jajan2 cantik/ngupi2 cantik”
“A bite” usually used for eating on the way especially those travelling with trains,they might stop at a station and eat there #EngVocab
Many of you said it’s “perjanjian”, well in this case it’s more like “rencana”, it’s not used as an official term
And another one, “needy” in Indonesian is “@lestarihai: “cari perhatian”
Note on the use of “Needy”:
“@abeizumi: but it’s use for adj or verb?” It is more of an adjective, and informal use
“@oneworldwill: is it the same meaning as poor? lack of money to afford necessary things? is it possible? for” needy” Hmm, I think it’s more for those people who got it but they still want or “need” more
Yes “service” here can be said as “@geepia: pelayanan
“Southern service” is actually the train itself, i.e. the train’s company is Southern, service is their product
It could also be “@alicesaraswati: Route”
“Expected” is also “re-scheduled” or “will arrive” instead of the original schedule.
In the UK, you would see the word “Expt.” on the schedule board if the train is re-scheduled or delayed
So, how did you do? Did you guess it right? I hope this #EngVocab session has been useful :)
@oneworldwill: thank you,tho. ;) the word”service” and “expected” is very useful for me today. New knowledge, good to know.
