Bahasa Indonesia Commonly Used Expression: "Makan Waktu"

After learning and practicing Oh.. begitu, sekarang juga, masuk akal, and biasa saja, we hope you are now more comfortable to express yourself in bahasa Indonesia. Aside from the language part, we also hope by knowing and using more expressions, you are now getting closer to your fellow Indonesians.

For your fifth expression, we want to give you a quick cultural note:

“Indonesians have a huge culture of eating, or in bahasa Indonesia, makan. With that in mind, the people have been expressing themselves using the word quite frequently : makan waktu, makan-makan, makan tempat, makan hati, makan angin, etc.“

Since one expression takes a lot of practice to master, let’s start with one thing we know you need the most: makan waktu.

Let’s examine the following example:

“Pembuatan paspor biasanya makan waktu

“Passport application usually takes a lot of time

As you can learn from the example, makan waktu is used to express “take a lot of time”. To get more examples makan saja is being expressed in daily situations, click the video below.


Selamat berlatih!
