We have added yet another feature to The Indonesian Way. Almost every lessons has one or more exercises which are always named like Exercise 04-01 etc. To many of these exercises we have added a voice recording feature. In the exercise a certain task is given, which contains the instruction to record a few sentences. For instance in Exercise 04-02 (Lesson 04 of The Indonesian Way), the following instruction is given:
Listen to each of the ten items below and repeat them. Each item gives you the name of a common food or drink. Insert this word after the verb makan or minum in a sentence like the sentences practised in the substitution exercise above. For example, if the cue word is ikan you might record something like: Saya suka makan ikan di pasar.
You can go ahead and add further sentences with slight modifications: Saya suka minum es cendol di Pasar Beringin. Ibu saya suka makan ikan goreng di Rumah Makan Sentosa, etc. Using the built-in voice recorder you can record the sentences as many times as you want, and you can listen to them and you can even download them.
If you are not sure whether your pronunciation, word choice, or grammar is 100% correct, you can register with IndoLingo and send the file per email to the IndoLingo instructor. She (or he) is a native speaker, and will respond to you in voice recording (and if necessary also in writing). This additional service is available for $2 per IndoLingo assignment.
This is how the recording button looks like. Try it out right here!
