I have a few online language programs, but one in particular makes more sense. Indonesianpod101.com is my most-used option:
- It comes to my inbox with a word a day.
- Each day's vocabulary is expanded in sentences and phrases. I click through the sentences to see how many other words I recognize. How are prefixes and suffixes added to change meaning?
- It both shows the words and has a listening option. I sure wouldn't say the familiar alphabet that way without audio help.
