this entry is written by me as it is requested by my friend from Tamil Nadu as he is concerned to learn Malay Language (bahasa Melayu).. I really appreciated it.. because its my national language or my mother tongue although in every state, we have our own dialect..=)
so, i'll try my best..huhu

first, we learn the basic.. such as word that we use in our daily life..

first, how to pronounce it??
just pronounce it followed the arrangement of the words..

2) man - lelaki
3) female - betina
4) woman - perempuan
5) children - kanak-kanak
