Which language do you think they speak in Indonesia? Malay, Indonesian or Bahasa? Have you ever learned it or do you know anyone who speaks it? Many people may recognize this language as Bahasa, and what does Bahasa really mean because there is also another way of calling this language, such as Malay language and Indonesian language.
