Not correct English. "We say good morning to Tini." or We greet Tini by saying "Good morning".

"He greeted me Good Morning, and then asked for my passport" - sounds perfectly natural. Though it sounds/looks more natural to put quote marks around the greeting.

The Indonesian sentence is also non-Standard. In Standard, it is (1) "Kami menyapa Tini dengan ucapan selamat pagi" or (2) "Kami menyapa Tini, "Selamat pagi!"."

With this course my Indonesian is improving but my English is going down the drain.

The English translation offered here is not how English people use the language. We'd say , typically, "We said good morning to Tini".

How often is 'menyapa' used as 'bid' as in 'to wish' rather than 'say' (the translation I see most commonly?)

I think it's best to use "bid" or "wish" in this particular sentence.

"menyapa" is mostly translated as "greet".

"Dia menyapaku" = he greets me.

You're in the class, then your classmate say "hi" or "good morning" to you when he/she enters the class -- that's called as "menyapa".

Why not: kami menyambut Tini selamat pagi?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

"menyambut" often uses like the following sentence:

"Kami menyambut tamu" = We welcome the guests
