How To Talk About Tech And The Internet In Indonesian

We’ve said many times before that immersion is one of the best ways to master a language. Sometimes, though, traveling to a country to surround yourself with native speakers isn’t an option. On the bright side, technology has made it easier than ever to connect with people all over the world. While it’s not the same as a trip to Indonesia, using the internet in Indonesian is a great way to supplement your language learning.

Before you can get started, you’ll need to master some of the vocab for using technology and the internet in Indonesian. Fortunately, a number of words are cognates, meaning you’ll see words that are easy to recognize. For the rest, you can study up on this guide to the basic vocabulary. And if you want to hear these terms pronounced by a native speaker, just hit the play button next to each word and phrase.
