English Dialogue About Indonesian Local Culture

Posted by


Learning spoken English is great with topics related to our lives. Bellow is one example of English conversation between two people talking about culture: an etiquette. The more you use English, the more fluent your tongue is.

Learn English, Spoken English, Japanese Culture

Goreun: Feroin, if you see someone sitting beside the road or in front of his or her house, then you are waling passing them, bow down your body.
Feroin  : Is that a rule?
Goreun: That's not an official rule. That's our culture.
Feroin  : Is the culture like in Japan?
Goreun: Different. There may be little similarity.
Feroin  : Was it inherited by Japanese people when they colonized this country?
Goreun: I don't think so. But, I don't think you're wrong. If this culture inherited by Japanese people, it should be the same. But, we're different.
Feroin  : Most people like to bow their body when they meet someone, especially new comer like me, right?.

Goreun: Yeah. We tend to give respect to new comers.
Feroin  : They look so proud of themselves when they have friends from other city or other country.
Goreun: You're right. As though they have won a big match.
Feroin  : Yeah. Many people invite me to their houses and all of them want me to eat at their house.

Goreun: You must eat.
Feroin  : What if 20 people invite me in a day?
Goreun: Haahahaaa...

Feroin  : I have only this a tiny stomach.
Goreun: You can eat little by little.
Feroin  : I remember the first of my arrival, I just eat dinner at your house sometimes.
Goreun: All of us feel like a family, because we have one grandma and grandpa.
Feroin  : It's a really big family.
Goreun: Yeah.
Feroin  : And, I think they served me special foods, more special than what they eat, right?
Goreun: They want to be respected by their guest, because it's hard to get respect from neighbor.
Feroin  : I see. I should learn more how to behave here.
