When using -ㄹ까 in the nuance of a suggestion, it is combined with a verb.

Av + -(으)ㄹ까

공부하다 + -ㄹ까 = 공부할까

먹다 + -ㄹ까 = 먹을까
찍다 + -ㄹ까 = 찍을까
읽다 + -ㄹ까 = 읽을까

듣다 + -ㄹ까 = 들까
만들다 + -ㄹ까 = 만들까
돕다 + -ㄹ까 = 도울까

※Av = an action verb

Add -ㄹ까 to the stem of a word without a patchum and -을까 to a word with a patchum.

No patchum in the stem

Shall we walk there for a change?

For words where the ㄷ patchm changes to ㄹ, add -을까 after the change.

Part of ㅂpatchum

If you’re really up for it, I can give you a hand.
