#EngQAs: “Sons and Daughters of Indonesia?”

@sierrapritta asked this on the Indonesian National Children’s Day

“min @EnglishTips4U i came accross a website and read a sentence that said, “…gives opportunity to the sons and daughter of Indonesia… Is that appropriate to say “putra putri Bangsa” with “sons and daughters of Indonesia”? why don’t we use “Youth generation”?”

Our answer is

“Sons and daughters of Indonesia” actually is okay. It is the same as “children of Indonesia”.

Although “the youth” or “the young generation” is fine too. “Sons and daughters” is just adds up a bit. More specific.

@abd_chaniago@sierrapritta but “sons and daughters of Indonesia” sounds so damn cool!

Haha you betcha!

@sierrapritta: oh I see..I thought “sons and daughters” is too literal, so it may be substituted properly hehehe okay then. Thank you :)

Well then, Happy Indonesian Children’s Day to all :) May our young generation gets better and better :D Yeehaaa!
