ABOUT THE LANGUAGE Indonesian courses in Portland
Indonesian is a normative form of the Malay language; an Austronesian (or Malayo-Polynesian) language; which had been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. It was elevated to the status of official language with the Indonesian declaration of independence in 1945; drawing inspiration from the Sumpah Pemuda (Youth’s Oath) event in 1928.
It is very similar to the official Malaysian form of the language. However it does differ from the Malaysian form in some ways, with differences in pronunciation and also in vocabulary; due in large part to the many Dutch and Javanese words in the Indonesian vocabulary.
Only 7% of the population of Indonesia speak the mother tongue (mainly in the vicinity of Jakarta), but altogether more than 200 million people speak it, with varying degrees of proficiency. Finally, it is an essential means of communication in a region with more than 300 native languages; used for business and administrative purposes, at all levels of education and in all mass media.
