verb stem
is used to make a suggestion.
This form is a little softer than the plain volitional form, so might be translated as 'shall we do ~'.

Shall we go?
Since it is a suggestion, even though the Japanese form ends with か (the question marker), the English translation is often phrased as a statement rather than a question.
