Bahasa Indonesia Words With Dual Meaning: "Jadi"

With 10 episodes in this series so far, we have already learned many Bahasa Indonesia words with dual meaning such as palu, beruang, and bisa. Be sure to read all of our previous posts to help you improve your knowledge

in Bahasa Indonesia!

This time, we are discussing the word . . . “Jadi.

Let’s take a look at the following examples:

Mulai besok, kakakku akan jadi mahasiswa di Universitas Indonesia.”

Starting tomorrow, my older sister will become a student at the University of Indonesia.

Minggu ini, aku sangat sibuk bekerja, jadi aku tidak bisa bertemu denganmu besok.

This week, I’m really busy with my work, so I can’t meet with you tomorrow.

As you can see from the examples above, the word Jadi share the same meaning as the English words

“to become” or “so.”

Because the words are pronounced and spelt in the exact same way, you need to know the context where this word is often used.

We always encourage you to practice using the language in your day-to-day life so that you can sharpen your skills in Bahasa Indonesia.

For more examples of how the word “Jadi” is used, watch the video here!

Improve your knowledge of Bahasa Indonesia vocabulary by reading all of our other dual-meaning word posts where we discuss words such as orang tua, apel, tinggal, lewat, pukul, halaman, and tahu.

Selamat berlatih!
