  5. "Pejabat itu tidak mau bertem…

"Pejabat itu tidak mau bertemu dengan jurnalis."

Translation:That official does not want to meet journalists.

September 20, 2018



Why is dengan jurnalis but just bertemu pejabat dengan was left out when meeting with the official


Should've been okay


In this case I think "meet with" sounds more correct. It conveys that it is an official meeting and not just in a casual sense.


"That official does not want to meet with journalists" is common in American English, but no matter who the official is, no matter what his job is, a British journalist would say, "That official does not want to meet journalists."
