There are no definite/indefinite articles in Indonesia: "I read the letter" is just as valid as "I read a letter" and the translation will depend on context.

Why not Aku. When to use say and when to use aku?

Aku is the informal use. Use when around feiends or family.

Saya is the more formal term. Use this at school, work, etc.
