"Can you read out the letter?"

Translation:Apakah kamu bisa membacakan suratnya?

June 19, 2019



Can I say
membaca suratnya = read the letter
membacakan suratnya = read the letter aloud
membacakan saya suratnya = read the letter to me


Yes to the first two.

No to the third. "Membacakan" is a transitive verb that requires a direct object after it. So: membacakan suratnya untuk saya.
