Interesting facts about the Indonesian language
Around 500 independent languages are spoken in Indonesia – almost 300 have been counted in West Papua alone. The official language is Bahasa Indonesia. This developed from the old trade language which was heavily influenced in particular by the Moluccans and the Malays. Added to this were Javanese, Dutch, and English expressions. The national language itself is as diverse as the country.
Bahasa Indonesia is taught in the schools and spoken primarily in the more densely populated areas where several ethnic groups come together. Without Bahasa, communication between, for example, a Sudanese from Java and a Balinese or a Buginese from Sulawesi would not be possible.
Indonesia is the largest state in South-East Asia, and is the largest island nation in the world. It has more than 17,000 islands, and is the world’s fourth most populous country, with over 262 million inhabitants. Indonesia is also home to more than 200 ethnic groups, all of which speak their own languages and maintain their own cultures and traditions.
The Indonesian archipelago extends over 5,120 kilometres in length. The largest island groups are:
– Greater Sunda islands (Kalimantan, Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi)
– Lesser Sunda Islands (Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores, Alor, Sumba, Timor)
– The Maluku Islands
– West Papua and Papua, the western part of New Guinea
