Hi everyone, i'm new to this website! :)

I have a question (i've moved back to the UK from Japan, so its annoying trying to learn japanese when you have nobody to ask for help!)
I am studying the GENKI Vol. 1 book and i am currently doing a section on 'propose to do the following things, using ましょうか'

This one question is bugging me, as i cant seem to get it right...

-the picture is of a man and a woman, the man has a thought bubble with two glasses of wine in it. So, in English it'd be something like 'Shall I go and get some wine?' OR 'Shall I bring some wine?'

Would I use 持ってくる ? Would it be something like - ワインを持ってくましょうか

I appreciate the help! Thanks Arigatou!!!!!!!! :)

I think 取ってきましょう works better than 持ってましょう.

I suspect what they're actually after is 飲みましょう.

It's at times like these when it would be better to be in a classroom. Then you can have fun with it and say things like ワインを飲んでラブホテルに行きましょう。
