Lecture 50: Making Suggestions and Recommendations

4.1 ( 11 )

Lecture Details

Making suggestions and recommendations Take a test at httpwww.learnex.in

In this lesson, Rachna teaches you to make suggestions and recommendations in four different ways.
You can make a suggestionrecommendation by starting your sentence with what about...., how about...., why dontdoesnt... and lets..
There are certain key points to be kept in mind while using each of them.
What should we watch on television tonight?
When you make a suggestion to the above question, you can do it in the following ways
1. What about watching the match?
2. How about watching the match?
The above two suggestions how about and what about are followed by a gerund ( the verb in its ing form) or can be followed directly by a noun.

1. What about the match?
2. How about the match?

3. Why dont we watch the match?
When you make a recommendation or a suggestion using why.., please note that the verb always goes in the simple present negative form. In case of the third person singular, you have to use doesnt. For example, Why doesnt he watch the match tonight?

4. Lets watch the match tonight.
In the above statement, Lets is a contraction of let + us =lets. In such a sentence, the simple or the base form of the verb follows lets.

More often than not, these structures are used interchangeably.
