Verbs are categorized into two action verb and moving verb.
Action verb means doing something at one place and moving verb means ‘move or transfer’.
Kikimasu (listen), mimasu (watch) and so on are in action verb group.
Ikimasu (go), kimasu (come) and so on are in moving verb group.
Action verbs need an object and an object marker ‘o’.
Moving verbs need a destination and a destination marker ‘ni’.
I hope it could be helpful.

When using particle markers what’s the difference between ~ni and ~o example won’t you go to Osaka? Is Osaka ~ni ikimasen ka and won’t you listen to the radio is Rajio ~o kikmasen ka
