Jessi: Top 25 Indonesian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 9: Do you like Indonesian food? In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Indonesian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Do you like Indonesian food?" In Indonesian this is
Fira: Apakah kamu suka masakan indonesia?

Jessi: Listen again at natural speed. Please repeat.

Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the English translation, breaking it down by syllable, and then giving it once more at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question, Do you like Indonesian food? is
Fira: kamu

Hi Abhishek,


Good question! In all of your sample sentences, โ€œsukaโ€ has the same meaning as โ€œmenyukaiโ€; and โ€œmemilikiโ€ has the same meaning as โ€œmempunyaiโ€. All your sample sentences are correct. Stick to this usages and you will be fine. They are the more common usage after all, as in you will hear such usage a lot. โ€œsukaโ€ has more meanings in different class of speeches, and if you want to know, you can google them using keywords โ€œsuka kbbiโ€. KBBI is an online Indonesian dictionary.


Salam,

Sarah

Suka and Menyukai both means ''to like''.

Does it depends on the context? Eg- Saya Menyukai Burung yang itu.

and Saya tidak suka jamur.

How can we differentiate?


This is an off topic question but we use Saya Memeliki and Saya Mempunyai

eg- Saya Memeliki hobi ( I have hobby)

but we say- Saya mempunyai kucing. (I have cat)

So please tell me the differences and how to use them (in their context).

Berterima Kasih.

Hi Kevin,


Anda is a very formal form of "you."

It is not common to use in daily conversation. You will likely hear "Anda" from advertisement and formal speech.


But when you are talking to the boss or clients, you might want to use "Bapak" for Sir, and "Ibu" for Ma'am, instead of Anda.


And Kamu is an informal form of "you."

You can use "Kamu" when talking to your friends, and someone whose younger than you.


Let me know if you have more question. :wink: Thank you.
