Hokkien

The Prominence of Hokkien in Medan, Indonesia

The Prominence of Hokkien in Medan, Indonesia


Growing up as a Chinese in Medan, Hokkien played a very big part in almost everything as it is technically our first language. My classmates from kindergarten all the way through high school happen to be mostly Chinese (as the schools I went to have predominantly Chinese students), and Hokkien was often the language we use to play and talk with our friends. Also, the Chinese food shops we frequent, stores we go to—Hokkien was often part of the transaction and it still is today.
