Suggest and Recommend
The English grammar structure used for the words suggest and recommend is somewhat unusual for non-native English speakers learning to speak English as a foreign language.
The structure is the same for both verbs. Let’s look.
- Common error: He suggested / recommended me to go to a doctor.
- Correct sentence: He suggested / recommended (that) I go to a doctor.
SUGGEST / RECOMMEND + (that) + Person or Personal pronoun + Verb
So, now you know the correct English grammar structure to use with both words. Practice that mentally 200 times and you should be ready when you need to use them.
