Download "THE ANGKOT GAME"
and have some fun with "Slang" Indonesian!
As a School of Language, LSI provides students with an education in "standard Indonesian." Obviously, we can not teach "vernacular" (or "slang") language, which would lead our students to embarrassment in the normal social and business situations of their lives.
With that said, it can be a lot of fun to learn some "street lingo" and pick up a few expressions to be used with vendors, parking attendants, taxi drivers, etc.
Download THE ANGKOT GAME and develop some skills in "vernacular" Bahasa Indonesia. (It should prove to be a welcome antidote to your regular Indonesian studies!)
The game instructions are, of course, provided in "standard Indonesian" . . .
but the dialogue of the characters is all in the "vernacular."
