Well, as far as my newspaper article went, it seems that the price of Rice in Central Kalimantan has remained steady, despite the lack of foreign imported rice. The reason? The government has a stockpile that can supply the area for the next 6 months. This is great. Constant few and reasonable prices.
My chapter was a little bit of a challenge today. Today it was all about passive voice. That's a little complicated, but having studied languages before, I'm fully aware of how and what a passive sentence does. So it was merely a matter of figuring out the specifics in Indonesian. I think I get it though, even if poor Joel had to be interviewed in the process (these are the characters of the Coursebook).
Actually, my biggest challenge today was the audio file. Apparently I had an set for lessons 1-10 as I did 11, which I recently downloaded through iTunes and Audible.com, so there were some words I didn't know that I was expected to, like mungkin. It means "Maybe."
Things are coming together well my friends. Coming together well.
