How to make a verb into a negative and a question
We call the verbs that end with MASU "the MASU-form of verbs." We use the MASU-form, when we speak politely. To make it a negative, we change MASU to MASEN. So, YOMIMASU (to read) becomes YOMIMASEN.
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.
Sakura-san may have thought I'm always reading manga and nothing else. But for me, manga are excellent materials for learning Japanese.
