  1. Great videos, sorry teachers, just as story. The phrase " Where did you get it ? " Can be translated to Indonesian as "kamu dapat dari mana? " Meanwhile this phrase quite impolite since "dapat " must be changed with " beli " in complete " kamu beli di mana ?? or in English "where did you buy it ?? ". 😊😊, is it weird if we say that way??
