Bahasa means language actually...
So one should say Bahasa Indonesia or Bahasa [insert a language] to refer to a certain language.

Why Nitpick?

I believe that as Baf was already conversing in Bahasa Indonesia his statement about speaking the language a little was okay.

Not bad at all actually. Sorry, didn't intend to sound to pick on you, Baf.
I'm just annoyed in general that people think "bahasa" means Indonesian (language).

If you're still interested in improving your Indonesian, may I give some tips?

You can say:
Di lantai 1 ada toko jual koran dan jamu/obat juga ada.
koran=newspapers
jual=sell
lantai=floor
City Plaza di Geylang Serai (Opp Paya Lebar MRT) juga ada. Dia juga ada VCD dan cassettes (musik). Jika ande pergi di satu hari minggu City Plaza ada orang indonesia banyak.
Di City Plaza ... juga ada. Di sana juga ada VCD dan kaset musik. Kalau kamu pergi pada hari Minggu di City Plaza (or you can say "di sana") ada banyak orang Indonesia.

When you use "jika" it sounds a little like Malay which is probably why the question.
sana=over there
kamu=you
pada=at
Terima Kasih - Sama Sama.
This is ok actually but the same person wouldn't say "thank you" and "you're welcome" I guess? :lol:
(BTW Maaf kann - Saya ada bhasa sedikit :wink: )
Ngomong2 (equals to btw) maafkan saya, saya hanya bisa bicara dalam bahasa Indonesia sedikit.

hanya=only
bicara=speak
dalam=in

For a person who speaks 2 foreign languages, I'm a little peculiar about grammar, sorry :oops:

Thanks.

All very hard looking and I understood what you were writing but would not be able to put that togethor in sentence form and as such I have to rely on Bhasa Anak Anak to communicate...

BTW Ande tahu, kamu di Indonesia dan orang orang selalu bicara bhasa senderi sama sama Indonesian. Itu hidup Bu.
