"Saya mengingatkan mereka untuk memasak makan malam."

Translation:I remind them to cook dinner.

November 9, 2018



Is it OK to say “Saya mengingatkan mereka memasak makan malam.” without “untuk”? If so, is the version with “untuk” more natural?


Hi, i know it has taken a year for you to get your answer but, if you do not use the untuk, it doesn't have the "to" part of the equation. I remind them cook dinner


Native Indonesian would understand that. But it would sound a bit weird. And yeah, "untuk" should be used because the stress is on that word to explain what will come after...
