Just one brown shoe? I mean, I suppose it can be done... haha

August 17, 2018


Well I thought the same thing as you did... lol

I think that this sentence can be translated into English with a plural : he buys brown shoes.

August 18, 2018


Agreed. It probably makes more sense that way. (People usually don't buy just one single shoe)

seems to be fixed. It showed 'brown shoes' to me now.

Plural "brown shoes" should be correct as well, I think

August 21, 2018


We never buy just one shoe. Please change the translation to “He buys brown shoes.”

I learned "coklat" for brown. Was my native Indoneisan speaking University lecturer wrong?

Hai teman! Both are correct, and used (cokelat / coklat) nowadays in Indonesia. Just "cokelat" is the officially correct in the official dictionary (Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia), so I insist "cokelat" is not more correct, just the most official.

Selamat belajar! :)

well in the dictionary its spell cokelat but the pronunciation is coklat.. so nowadays we tend to spell it coklat.. same goes to isteri -> istri : wife, putera -> putra : son, puteri -> putri : daughter, karena -> karna : because, etc... I think the gov of education should change the dictionary spelling

The default translation should be "brown shoes".

August 25, 2018


One does not buy one shoe. I think it should be: "He buys brown shoes."

Hai teman! I understand what you mean. I think semantically it is more correct to use the English plural noun. But also, I think this course is intended to show how the Indonesian noun can be translated as singular and plural as well, and grammatically correct as well. I hope you can also report your sentence to be included to alternative sentences.

Selamat belajar! :)

OK, I understand it just means brown, but can't it hypothetically mean "chocolate shoes"? Both as a colour ('exactly the colour of chocolate') or even shoes actually made from chocolate?

I like chocolate shoes :)

"Dia" is genderless, he/she should be accepted.
