Indonesia is located just north of Australia, and is a great place to call into, whether your a backpacker or looking for a good night out, or a luxury traveler wanting to be pampered. Either way, ou will want to know how to say a few things in the lcoal language.
While this is just an intro you can find a great resource in Indonesian pickuo lines with the book Making Out in Indonesian. This book will be a great guide to understanding the language of love in Indonesia. While you're waiting for that to arrive, you have my shortened guide of Indonesian pickup lines and compliments.
A few things to remember:
Indonesian has some similarities to Tagalog.
The Letter "C" makes a "ch-" sound, as in check.
The letter "i" can make a sound like "ee"
And most importantly, this is by no means the definitive guide to Indonesian speaking and phrases, nor are the phonetics official. It is just how I hear them and how I can best describe the sounds.
If you really want to get a great book on Spanish Pickup Lines, then buy the book Making Out in Indonesian. This is the only real authority on pickup lines in this language.
As well, if you are Indonesian yourself and want to add to this list, please contact us.
We'll start off with the small talk then get down to business. Enjoy!
