In the illustration above, we can see that there's no differences between Indonesia language and English language. What about the others?.
Then, Study this following case!
In the sentence above we'll see that Subject /saya/ is similar to subject /I/ as well as Predicate /lapar/ and predicate /hungry/. However, there's a word we usually call it "BE" or "TO BE". You will not find this word in Indonesian language. Here, we can conclude that one of the differences we'll find in both languages is in that "BE". "BE" is one of the elements in building a good sentence in English Language. Therefore, this element can not be omitted.
- She is a good students.
- I was learning English Grammar when he came.

To take notice of the discussion above, we should focus our discussion in the difference then.
