tabemasenka

Japanese Grammar: ~masenka

Today’s lesson is about suggesting or invite someone to do something.

Difference between 〜ませんか masenka and 〜ましょうか mashouka

You could do the same with “mashou”, as in “tabemashouka”. But there’s a bit difference…

In 食べませんか (tabemasenka), usually you haven’t go to eat yet. You’re suggesting someone to see if they would like to eat it.

While in 食べましょうか (tabemashouka), usually you both are already infront of a food, and would like to start eating. You ask him “Shall we eat?” or a more precise translation would be “Shall we start eating?”

Happy learning! 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。
