The Indonesian alphabet is easy to learn as it uses the Latin alphabet and comprises 26 letters. The Indonesian alphabet is also used in the Indonesian language’s system of pronunciation. Indonesian uses a phonetic alphabet, meaning that each letter represents a specific sound, and the sounds of the letters are consistent regardless of where they appear in a word.
