Indonesian Names

Indonesian is the national language of Indonesia. Malay, the lingua franca of the Archipelago, became a symbol of its unity and the basis for the national language of independent Indonesia. However, most people speak both Indonesian and the dialect of their particular province. For example, in Java they speak Javanese. The sound and the writing are totally different from Indonesian language.

Rules: The Indonesian language is the same as English; it consists of 26 alphabets, from A-Z. However, the pronunciation of Indonesian language is different from English. The living vocals are a, e, i, o, u.

A as in unhappy

E as in apple

I as in eagle

O as in boy

U as in put
