Difference between Kamu and Kalian?

August 17, 2018


Kamu is singular 'you'

Kalian is collective 'you' (basically 'you all')

August 17, 2018


Kalian is plural.

Kamu = you Kalian = you all / you guys

What about "Aku", why are there two words for I ? Oh, sorry, it is informal and "Saya" is formal.

Actually, I meant to originally ask about "Anda" which is also singular you, but it is formal, while "Kamu" is informal.

I think the hardest will be differentiating "Kami" we from "Kamu" you.

When i was learning indo in school i had trouble between kami and kita, rather than with kamu. Since kami is we in "just us, nor you" we thought of ka-mi as in me, so its personal. While kita is "all of us" we would use ki-tagether. Alternatively, kamu ends in a u so its YOU. I hope this helps!

Although 'kalian' = ' you all' Duolingo marks that as a wrong answer.

Duolingo often accepts “you all” for other courses. You could try reporting it as an alternative if it was not accepted for you. It is not the standard form in English which is simply “you” for both singular and plural, so specify if it is used in your area and where that is.
