Wow, go straight for the jugular.

Here 'agak' translates as 'a little'. So how does using 'agak' differ from using 'sedikit', which was in previous lessons?

I learned so many polite things to say on Duolingo

Rude but probably appropriate for young drunk foreigners in Kuta.

"You are a little stupid." should also be an acceptable answer.

Too impolite to say even if that is what you think!

I would probably use sedikit here instead of agak

"Dumb" here in English is ableist in a way that isn't present in the Indonesian- it would be better to remove it since "stupid" describes the word perfectly well.

What's wrong with "you are rather stupid" ?


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

At least to me, "rather" is more than "a little bit" but to a lesser extent than "very." Hooray, fun with comparatives and graduated modifiers!
