Translating from Indonesian language to English language is no walk in the park. It requires not only good grammar skills, but also the knowledge of a great number of vocabulary.
However, English vocabulary can be tricky. When two words have similar spelling, people may mistake one for the other, even though they have different meanings.

We hope these will be helpful to you. Look out for our next English Today blog post, and follow @mavgram for mini reminders on Instagram!
