I designed this ultra graded course perfect for zero knowledge beginners.
"You and I" - Only six new Malay language words in your first lesson and simple sentences for listening comprehension.
Vocabulary: you, I, yes, no, money, have, don't.
"Is He a Friend?" - Another three new words to form your first short dialogue.
Vocabulary: He, friend, is it?
"Looking for Coffee" - Building on vocabulary from the previous two lessons to help you express your preferences for drinks.
Vocabulary : find, at, coffee, tea, house, want, can, never mind, sorry.
"Bring the Fat Fellow to Where?" - Teaches you to address an acquaintance, find out someone's whereabouts, to respond to apologies with minimal new words.
Vocabulary: fatty, where, to as a preposition, bring, go, sick, thank you.
"How? How can?" - At this stage, you would have accumulated sufficient little tricks to speak like a Malaysian ( that is, if you practise super diligently ) and most important you learn to disagree rather agreeably.
Vocabulary: as...as, how, not bad, you plural and singular form, we, with.
These are sample audiio lessons from my bahasa Malaysia for dummies course which is also available for sale if you want to "take it home". The reading material is translated into three languages.
