"This drink contains strawberries."

Translation:Minuman ini mengandung stroberi.

April 14, 2019



This should mean: "This drink is pregnant with strawberries."


Hi Siddhartha... the term 'mengandung' refers to meaning contain .....Hamil is the most popular Indonesian word that is used for pregnant ....mengandung is rare word that is used for pregnant .... Example : tini mengandung ....here it refers : tini is pregnant(having or containing a child) ... they are confusing us in these lessons ... better you use hamil for pregnant and mengandung for contain .... simple


Is arbei archaic for strawberry?


Arbei is almost similar to strawberry. Arbei's size is smaller. Some translate it just as a berry.

Indonesia has many fruits that look like similar but different. Furthermore, local languages name those fruits differently.


"Minuman ini mengandung stroberi-stroberi" ... wrong!
