___ます? vs. ___ますか?:What You Should Know About it

What is the difference between What is the difference between “___ます?(masu) and ___ますか?(masuka)”? Which is used as “more polite”? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!

___ます?(masu) / ___ますか?(masuka)

Do you ___?, Are you ___?, Is it ___?, etc / 是…?, 是…吗? / ___인가요?, ___입니까? / ___ không?, ___ không vậy ạ?

“___ます?(masu) and ___ますか?(masuka)” mean “Do you ___?, Are you ___?, Is it ___? etc” and which has been used” when you ask someone for something” The tips for using them are that native speakers often omit “か” of “___ますか?”, so that would be “___ます?” such as “ならんでます?(Are you in line?)” and “ならんでますか?(Are you in line?)” which can be used as polite. If I had to say, “ならんでますか?” would be a little bit polite than “ならんでます?”. So, in business situations, you might want to use “ならんでますか?” instead of “ならんでます?”. Additionally, “ならんでます?” is not casual, it is between casual and polite. For instance, “このバスは空港くうこうきます?(Does this bus go to the airport?)” and “このバスは空港くうこうきますか?(Does this bus go to the airport?)”, “どのくらいちます?(How long do I have to wait?)” and “どのくらいちますか?(How long do I have to wait?)”, “このみちであってます?(Is this the right way?)” and “このみちであってます?(Is this the right way?)”, etc. Everyone could use “___ます?” and “___ますか?” in daily conversations. I’d say “___ます?” sounds native speakers, why don’t you use it form tomorrow?
