  5. "I did not come to my graduat…

"I did not come to my graduation ceremony."

Translation:Aku tidak datang ke upacara wisudaku.

June 19, 2019



How actually do we choose saying come or go in Indonesian?


Yes, the more natural English sentence would use the word "go", wouldn't it?

I did not go to my graduation ceremony. Aku tidak menghadiri upacara wisudaku. (Using "pergi ke" sounds translationese to me.)

I don't think we use the word "pergi" often in such contexts. "Datang" or "menghadiri" (attend) are more commonly used.
