英会話のコツ: Recommend & Suggest

Using recommend and suggest can be confusing.  
This is a common mistake:  

  • NG) I recommend you to learn English

Instead, try these:

  • I recommend that you learn English
  • I recommend learning English

Recommend & suggest need  “that” before "you, he, she"
Here are some examples:  

  • I’m really tired ---> I suggest that you get some sleep
  • I lost my wallet ---> My friend suggested that I go to the police station
  • She was bored --->  I suggested that she go shopping
  • I feel sick ---> I recommend that you go to hospital
  • I’m looking for a good restaurant ---> I recommend that you try the Sunrise Grill

Here are some examples with nouns and gerunds (動名詞):

  • I’m really tired ---> I suggest exercise
  • I lost my wallet ---> My friend suggested going to the police
  • She was bored ---> I suggested bowling
  • I feel sick ---> I recommend going to the hospital
  • I’m looking for a good restaurant ---> I recommend the Sunrise Grill
