Using Verbs in Indonesian

Wednesday, January 2, 2008

In Indonesian, all kinds of subjects must be followed by the same verb. There is no way to add "s" or "es" at the end of verbs. Consider the following examples:

Mereka berenang di kolam renang.
They swim in the swimming pool.

Laura berenang di kolam renang.
Laura swims in the swimming pool.

Verb: berenang (swim/swims)

Saya mengendarai mobil.
I drive a car.

John mengendarai mobil.
John drives a car.

Verb: mengendarai (drive/drives)

Kamu pergi ke sekolah.
You go to school.

Dia pergi ke sekolah.
He (or She) goes to school.

Verb: pergi (go/goes)
