  5. "Ayo kita berangkat."

"Ayo kita berangkat."

Translation:Let's go.

August 29, 2018



While the dictionary hints for 'Ayo' are possibly true, this is one of those words that doesn't really have a great English translation. It's a spoken word only that has cultural context. It is used to get the attention of those you are speaking to. In Australia the equivalent might be 'Hey guys', or 'Come on guys'.


Berangkat should be translated as "leave" not generically as "go" ("pergi"). "Ayo, kita berangkat" should be "Let's leave."


Let's go is not correct. Kami = we. The correct translation is let's we go (this in according of my Indonesian wife)
