  5. "Tini returns from school."

"Tini returns from school."

Translation:Tini kembali dari sekolah.

May 25, 2019



pulang is to return home right? If so this answer is wrong


Both are correct. Pulang means return home, so "Tini returns home from school" (Tini pulang dari sekolah), whereas kembali just means returns or comes back, so "Tini returns from school" (Tini kembali dari sekolah). She may not have returned home. It could mean she returns to the library or to work or anywhere. Kembali means return but does not specify a place, whereas pulang specifies home. If it were Tini returns home from school, pulang would be more accurate, but in this case where it does not specify, kembali is more accurate:)


Should it not be "Tini kembali dari sekolah"?

    1.)Tini kembali "ke" sekolah. Tini returns "to" school.

    2.) Tini kembali "dari" sekolah. Tini returns "from" school.


    I have seen previously that "pulang" means go home or return home


    This is wrong = Ini salah


    What is wrong?
