Indonesian: F–10 Sequence / Levels 3 and 4 / Understanding / Systems of language
Content description
Recognise and reproduce pronunciation conventions, including loan words from English and intonation for questions, statements and commands.
  1. making connections between Indonesian and English sounds, for example, c is the ch sound in ‘cheese’; g is the hard g in ‘gun’ but never soft as in ‘germ’; k is a soft sound if it appears at the end of a word as in tidak, kakak
  2. knowing that using the imperative form -lah with appropriate intonation softens its force and shows consideration, for example, Berbarislah, Angkatlah tangan
  3. recognising different intonation for statements and questions, for example, Kamu suka apel (with falling intonation) and Kamu suka apel? (with rising intonation)
  4. identifying onomatopoeic words such as those related to transport, for example, tut-tut (car horn), brum-brum (bus), jes-jes (puffing train), kring-kring (bike bell)
