So about a year ago I watched this video and I don't understand cuz the writings are in Japanese but I studied it after. And then I came back and I easily read the sentences. I was so proud of myself for making it this far.

Instead of saying, suki dewa arimasen, and instead of saying , totemo suki desu why don't you say dai suki desu?
