A Quarantine Comeback

A Quarantine Comeback

We're back for another episode via a recorded zoom chat! Sorry in advance for the sound quality. We miss doing the podcast, and we've gotten some messages about our "disappearances" so here we are! In this episode we're talking about things we're doing during quarantine... (spoiler: it's a lot of cleaning), and some words to express our feelings during this pandemic.

Hopefully our listeners (wherever you are) are staying safe & healthy!

Love you guys,

Pamit / Saying Goodbye

Pamit / Saying Goodbye

Indonesians love to take their time saying their goodbyes... Cindy & Kristen talks some phrases you say when you say goodbye, when you’re leaving somewhere... especially since Kristen is going to Japan soon.

Sorry for the short & rushed episode! We were trying to squeeze this episode before Kristen's trip! We'll chat longer on next episodes!

PS: There will be no new episode on 12/15 because Kristen is unavailable, but we'll be back on the 22nd!

Makan-Makan / Eating Out (Part 2)

Makan-Makan / Eating Out (Part 2)

This episode features more learning and less laughing. In this episode, Cindy taught Kristen (and our listeners) how to order food in Indonesian through 12 simple phrases you can start learning today. In the end we talk about some weird Indonesian eating culture that intrigues us. We are still perfecting our format, so please give us some feedback on: or at instagram at @bulebelajarbahasa!

Makan-Makan / Eating Out (Part 1)

Welcome to episode 2 of podcast Bule Belajar Bahasa! In this episode we get a little bit carried away as we talk about our favorite topic: food. Cindy teaches Kristen how to say the alphabet letters in Indonesian, as well as talking about how to order food, cook food, adjust taste in Bahasa Indonesia. This episode was so long that we had to split it up into 2 episodes (sorry not sorry)!
