“It happens in many languages, like in America for example. I come from families of Cuban and American descent. So we at home often talk in Spanish and American.
But in Indonesia alone, maybe there aren’t many mixed families like that. But there’s nothing wrong with mixing the two languages. “
The man who is familiarly called Mr.D himself revealed that the trend of ‘child language South Jakarta’ is not a bad thing.
