I'm currently trying to learn nihongo. But these words are confusing me.

Does anyone kindly help me differentiate desu from imasu?

and what does "wo" mean? Thanks

Please use the general help thread.

In Japanese language, Desu is sometime formal/informal (depends). Imasu is always formal (polite manner)
