18 Common Verbs to Describe Activities – My Daily Routine 

The verbs

Below are my daily routine outlined, just a general idea. When we describe what to do, we use the verb + masu form.

A. The verb + masu. For example, to get up, we say Oki masu

B. The object o verb + masu. For example, to eat a breakfast, we say Asa gohan o tabe masu.
