Is anyone still around on this comm? I started learning Indonesian, but there doesn't seem to be an Indonesian-specific comm (and most of my learning resources are for Malay anyway) so I joined here.

There's this northern Philippine language called "Ilocano". I am a speaker of this language.

I find it fascinating that Malay and Ilocano seem to have more words in common than Tagalog and Malay.

New Lang-8 Malay/Indonesian Group [Dec. 13th, 2007|05:39 pm]

Has anyone heard of lang-8? It is a social network place designed by a Japanese person. It is very similar to Japan's mixi only it is specifically for language learners. Anyway, one of the things that you can do on the site is creating groups. I have created a group for those that are learning Malay and/or Indonesian. Check it out!
