Jili-guru 4 (Fourth Malay Class)

I am seriously thinking of starting a systematic on-line Malay course now, because there are not many on the net. I just found one entry for Malay course in the Omniglot on-line language course list. Though I still have not had a schedule, I have a good name for it. 🙂

As for now, I continue post my class notes here.

We learnt days of the week yesterday. Here is the cross table:

hari Ahad / hari Minggu
Sunday
hari Isnin
Monday
hari Selasa
Tuesday
hari Rabu
Wednesday
hari Khamis
Thursday
hari Jumaat
Friday
hari Sabtu
Saturday

Don’t be surprised that you find a people named Selasa in Malasia. Most possibly, she was born on Tuesday.

We learnt the months also. They are very similar to those in English. But some of them, such as April and Januari, have different pronunciations in Malay.
