since when is Indonesian so easy? Apr 2, 2008

Oh, no, no another person coming out with this old preconception about Indonesian being so easy!!!!!!!

I wonder whether any of the people that say Indonesian is so easy can actually speak it???

We're talking about a language where all the vocab has to be learned from scratch, with no help from cognates as is the case for most European languages. The grammar also isn't that straight-forward. If it's so easy, let's adopt it as a lingua franca instead of English or Esperanto for that matter.

I'm not saying that Indonesian isn't easier than say, Hungarian, but is it that easy? And as for it being just a bit more difficult than Esperanto that's ridiculous.
