Suggest is often mistaken for propose in English, particularly by French speakers.
Je te propose d’aller au cinéma ce soir. Is not: I propose you to go to the cinema tonight.
Instead, in English, we’d say: I suggest (that) we go to the cinema tonight.
Use the word suggest in different ways:
- I’d like to suggest (that) we go out in the evening instead of the afternoon, it’s too hot during the day.
- Here, use the word suggest + subject + infinitive. « That » is optional, you can choose to use it when you feel like it will make your sentence more clear.
- Suggest something: Mary suggested pizza for dinner.
- Suggest something to somebody: Erin suggested taking the week off to her assistant, who looked like he really needed it.
