Today I went to International Office with a Vietnamese friend and an Indonesian friend to practice for OSCE. International Office is a place in my university where international students hang around or hold some events. In that room there was also another Vietnamese student and when she talked to my friend in Vietnamese, my Indonesian friend and I was like, “I guess we need subtitle.”
I think my Vietnamese friend also feels the same when I talk Javanese to my friends. She needs subtitle, too. Well, she’ll understand Javanese sooner or later since she’s quite close to some “crazy Javanese” like my friends and me.
