Memorizing and understanding many different vocabularies is a really important part of becoming fluent
in the language you are learning, because of this, we have already previously discussed many Bahasa Indonesia
This time, we are discussing . . . “Minggu.”
For a better understanding, take a look at the following examples:
“Biasanya pada hari Minggu, aku dan keluargaku menonton film di rumah.”
“Usually on Sunday, my family and I watch a movie at home.”
“Aku akan pergi ke Bali minggu depan untuk mengunjungi rumah kakekku.”
“I will go to Bali next week to visit my grandfather’s home.”
Just like the examples above show, the word Minggu can mean both the English words “Sunday” and “week.” Please note that there is a small difference in grammar as the word Minggu meaning “Sunday” will always have
a capitalized “M” because it is the name of a day.
Aside from that, the word is spelt and pronounced in the same way for both meanings, so you will have
to pay close attention to the context where it is used in a conversation.
