A WA B GA SUKI DESU
(A likes B.)
SUKI is an adjective meaning "to be fond of" or "to like." GA is a particle indicating the object of an adjective.
e.g.) ANNA WA MANGA GA SUKI DESU. (Anna likes manga.)
If you change MASU of MASU-form verbs to MASEN KA, you are inviting people to do something.
MINNA DE HON-YA NI IKIMASU. (We will all go to the bookstore.)
>> MINNA DE HON-YA NI IKIMASEN KA. (Why don’t we all go together to the bookstore?)

Two types of adjectives
Adjectives are divided basically into two kinds, those that end with the syllable I, and those that do not. Those that end with the syllable I are called I-adjectives. They include words like HIROI (wide), and ATARASHII (new).
Japanese is a language with lots of onomatopoeia. A wide range of onomatopoeia in the Japanese language, from noises made by animals to expressions of feelings, is explained by audio.
Rodrigo is great. He seems to be reading novels in Japanese. I will do my best so that I can read manga in Japanese!
