Italians know the struggle (look up the word succhiare if you're curious why)
"I like apple" can be correct English. What if you are choosing a flavour of drink. "which flavour do you prefer?" "I like apple".
Suka (to like) is similar to Japanese suki 好き which has the same meaning! Their words for you are also similar: anda (formal) and kamu (informal) in Indonesian and anata あなた and kimi 君 in Japanese with the same formal informal distinctions
