  5. "Kita adalah bangsa yang besa…

"Kita adalah bangsa yang besar."

Translation:We are a big nation.

February 22, 2019



I think the translations should be "sebuah" bangsa yang besar.. because there is "a" before big nation (?) Cmiiw


"Country" is a synonym of "nation" so "We are a big country" should be accepted


I think a better word to use here is "great' -> "We are a great nation"


I dont know what the indonesian is trying to convey, but in English a big nation would imply a large physical size (Indonesia is the 14th biggest nation), where a great nation is a patriotic statement of pride in a nation (i love Indonesia, it is a great nation)
