What is your mother tongue? I wonder why is it called Mother Tongue. Mine is Malay or in my "mother tongue" is called "Bahasa Melayu". A lot of people thought that Malay language is synonym to Malaysia. This is not true. People in the island of Riau, Indonesia do speak Bahasa Melayu. It is their daily language that they use more often than Bahasa Indonesia itself. So do anyone speak Malay here, or are interested in learning the language.
