Kosa kata (Vocabulary)Edit

  • Pemandu = guide ("Tour Guide" means people who guide the tour)
  • Wisata = Tour


Awalan Me- (Me- prefix)Edit

In the passage, you'll notice the first prefix in Indonesian: me-. It's the most important and commonly used in Indonesian.

When it's combined with verbs like above (pandu → memandu), it means the same as the infinitive form. The only thing is that we emphasize that now the verb is in active form.

Awalan Pe- (Pe- prefix)Edit

  • See above explanation for this section

In the passage, you'll notice the first prefix in Indonesian: pe-. Which is different than memandu.

pe- here used to denotes Job or profession (pe+pandu → pemandu).
