Ambis Meaning In Indonesian

Halo semuanya, apa kabar kalian? Hello, this time, we're going to talk about the meaning of the word [ambis]. This is a slang term, which is used by younger generations in Indonesia. As always, we're also going to watch a scene from an Indonesian movie where this word is spoken.

If you have any questions regarding the Indonesian language, you can ask me directly, or you can join my group. You can see it on my About Me page.

So, let's dive in.

Ambis In the Indonesian Language

Actually, [ambis] is short for [ambisius]. This is actually from an English word, [ambitious]. The meaning is also the same as the ambitious meaning in English.

Ambis means having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed.

Later, we're going to watch a scene from a movie where this word is being used.

Next, let's watch the movie clip where this word is spoken.

Ambis In Movie Clips

This clip is taken from a web series from Umay Shahab's youtube channel. Let's watch the clip down below.

What she said in the clip with English translations is as follows.

Alina: Ini kisah 4 orang siswa yang hidupnya didedikasikan untuk pendidikan. Cie elah! Lebay amat gue! Intinya sih, kita anak-anak ambis yang pengen masuk univ negeri. (This is a story about four students whose lives are dedicated to education. OMG! I'm so exaggerating! The point is, we are ambitious students who want to be accepted at public universities.)

So, those 4 students in the clip are ambitious students who have big dreams in their lives. [Univ] is short for [universitas], which means [university] in English. [Cie elah!] is just an exclamation word. [Pengen] is informal for [ingin], which means [want] in English.

I think that's all for now, and if I find another scene where this word is being spoken, Insya Allah, I will update this article again. Bye now.
