Suki na dake desu



I don't understand the use of the “na” in the expression “suki na dake desu”

Thanks in advance for your answer



こんにちは (Konnichiwa) Abgueguen,

Thanks for your question. 


Since すき (suki) is a な (na) adjective, you need to add the particle な (na) when using it to modify the thing that comes after it. In this case, すき (suki) “like” modifies that word だけ (dake) “just,” so we need to add the particle な (na) after すき (suki) to join these two together.

I hope this helped. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
