Why do Indonesian's use "wkwkwk" for "hahaha"?

Why do Indonesian's use "wkwkwk" for "hahaha"? | Indonesian | Scoop.it

Is it just another country’s interpretation of the way laughter sounds or is there another reason? No, it is not our interpretation of laughter. Our alphabet phonetics are similar to the Germans or Dutch, just switch w and v (read w and v like the English), you got Indonesian language. So, normally we do “hahahahaha” just like many others around the world.

Australia-Indonesia relationship improving despite Widodo's postponed visit

Australia-Indonesia relationship improving despite Widodo's postponed visit | Indonesian | Scoop.it
At Heathmont College in Melbourne's east, there has been a rise in the number of students taking Indonesian language classes since the introduction of the BRIDGE schools project, which directly connects Australian students with their peers in Indonesian schools.

The students talk to each other through video calls and the intercultural understanding on both sides is growing.

Heathmont College's Languages Co-ordinator Prema Devathas has seen Bahasa Indonesia enrolment numbers rise so much that she is expecting full classes next year across three grade levels.

"It's like a very personalised learning, like a borderless classroom," she said.

"You're learning with people there and there's a kind of connection and solidarity when kids share themselves with the others.

"They find out they're not the only ones who are teenagers. All teenagers around the world are quite similar."

For these students, making cultural adjustments with Australia's nearest Asian neighbour has become easier to do.

The death of Indonesian language learning in Queensland

The death of Indonesian language learning in Queensland | Indonesian | Scoop.it
The dire situation of Indonesian language learning at Queensland schools and universities is, in a way, a microcosm of what is happening more broadly in Australia. It has been on a downhill trend for a long time now and educators and advocates of Indonesian language literacy have become completely disillusioned by a trend that seems inevitably veering toward the end of Indonesian being taught across Queensland.

A striking contrast is the relatively upbeat rhetoric of state governments and policy makers about what is deemed the “Asian Century” and the importance of relations with countries such as Indonesia. We hear ubiquitous statements of how Indonesia is a priority to Australia and that the case for increased and better engagement with Indonesia is a compelling one.

Perjalanan Shafira Ikuti Perayaan Kemerdekaan Indonesia di Perth Australia

Program yang menyuguhkan berita atau informasi menarik dari dunia entertainment, di dalam dan luar negeri berdasar pada fakta dan informasi.

Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Celebrity Shafira Um summarizes the recent visit by Indonesian artists (Michael J & Pacenogei) for a series of events held in Perth around Indonesian Independence Day 2016. I was fortunate to be present at both performances featured in this video by NET Entertainment and witnessed the positive engagement by Australian audiences. Lucky students at the schools concert in Mandurah Baptist College will never forget Michael's performance and hopefully be inspired to continue learning the language of our nearest neighbour. This video remains a useful resource for upper school students across Australia studying bahasa Indonesia.

When Death Doesn’t Mean Goodbye

When Death Doesn’t Mean Goodbye | Indonesian | Scoop.it

For Torajans, the death of the body isn’t the abrupt, final, severing event of the West. Instead, death is just one step in a long, gradually unfolding process. Late loved ones are tended at home for weeks, months, or even years after death. Funerals are often delayed as long as necessary to gather far-flung relatives. The grandest funeral ceremonies are week-long events drawing Torajans home in a vast reverse diaspora from wherever in the world they may be. When a brigade of a hundred or more motorcycles and cars rips through town accompanying a corpse home from far away, traffic stops in a manner that not even an ambulance or a police officer can command. Here, death trumps life.

Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Toraja is simply the most fascinating place in Indonesia! This article explains the funeral rites well (caution-there are some very graphic photos). Death, the dead and funerals are something you cannot escape when you visit the highlands.  I was invited by my driver to meet his aunt and mother, who had both died 8 and 5 years beforehand.
