Диалог к видео. Как употреблять глагол to suggest.
A: Rinat, how can we use the verb “to suggest — предлагать”?
R: The verb “to suggest” can be used with other verbs, with nouns or with wh-questions. For example:
I suggest that you do something.

We can use “to suggest” with a noun:
R: Anya, can you suggest a topic for a new dialog?
A: Yes, I can suggest a topic.
I suggest to make a dialog about love.
R: This is a common mistake. We can’t use infinitive after the verb “to suggest”. We should use the verb with the ending -ing after the verb “to suggest”. So you can say:
I suggest making a dialog about love.
You can also use the verb “to suggest” with wh-questions (what, where, when, how). For example:
R: Anya, could you suggest what else we can do to improve our dialogs?
