How to Count In Bahasa Indonesia

Halo, ketemu lagi dengan saya, Iman Prabawa. In today's topic, we are going to learn about how to count in Bahasa Indonesia. I have recorded my voice so that you can follow along, imitating my voice. 

If you have any questions regarding the Indonesian language, you can ask me directly. You can see how to do that on my About Me page. 

If you are a beginner in the Indonesian language, you can learn step by step with My Lesson Here.

So, without further ado, let's get started!

Counting From 1 to 10

Here, we're going to count from 1 to 10.


One in Bahasa Indonesia is called satu. Two in Bahasa Indonesia is called dua. Three in Bahasa Indonesia is called tiga. Four in Bahasa Indonesia is called empat. Five in Bahasa Indonesia is called lima. Six in Bahasa Indonesia is called enam. Seven in Bahasa Indonesia is called tujuh. Eight in Bahasa Indonesia is called delapan. Nine in Bahasa Indonesia is called sembilan and ten in Bahasa Indonesia is called sepuluh.

So, let's make this more organized! I will write down below, and you can start by saying all of these words. Okay?

1= Satu
2= Dua
3 = Tiga
4 = Empat
5 = Lima
6 = Enam
7 = Tujuh
8 = Delapan
9 = Sembilan
10 = Sepuluh

Yeah! We've already learned how to count from 1 to 10 in Bahasa Indonesia. It's easy, right? Next, you're going to learn how to pronounce it by watching my video pronouncing all those 10 numbers in Bahasa Indonesia.

So, let's listen to the audio below. It's a video so that you can follow along while you're watching the number on your screen.


It's easy, right? Next, we're going to learn to count from 10 to 20.

Counting From 11 to 20

Now, we go to the next numbers. So here are numbers 11 to 20 in Bahasa Indonesia.

13 = Tiga belas
14 = Empat belas
15 = Lima belas
