Construction:

1) ~masu verb – masu + mashou

Here are a few quick and useful examples:

行きましょう
ikimashou.

Let’s go.

 

遊びましょう

Let’s
play.

 

先生と話しましょう
sensei to hanashimashou.
Let’s talk to the teacher.

 

日本語を勉強しましょう
nihongo o benkyou shimashou.

This example uses suru. Another example would be:

  • This construction is very easy if you know the masu (semi formal) form of the verb.
  • If you are a beginner, you probably want to stick with the ~masu form anyway.
