Thank you for reminding me of verb patterns. I can’t resist to ask you something. Is it possible to say: I recommend/suggest YOU UPDATING YOUR resume. I am quite puzzled :-D and this way seems to be the most natural way. Thank you for your answer and take care :)

Pavel-15

    Pavel, I think, English-spoken people use this pattern in the way Adam explained: “(Subject) recommend/ suppose/ suggest (an action) (an object for the action)”. Addressee or recipient is hidden in the “action” or “object” parts (HER updating/ YOU update) or (MY resume/ YOUR resume). In our languages we mark out an addressee (YOU, HIM, HER, …) separately.

    Andrey

    I recommend/suggest (that) YOU UPDATE YOUR resume
    I recommend/suggest UPDATING YOUR resume
    I recommend/suggest YOUR UPDATING YOUR resume

      Hi Alex, how’ve you been?

      Alex, the more grammar videos I watch, the more I’m convinced that you are a gifted teacher; you make difficult grammar topics easy to understand.

      Just one question about giving advice:

      Does the possessive gerund express EXACTLY the same idea as . . .

      I suggest updating your resumé =

      I suggest your updating your resumé ?

      Many thanks for this wonderful lesson Alex.

      Regards

      Regino

Hi Alex, thanks for the lesson, but I have one question look please and answer (They advised _______________. a)taking lessons, b)me take lessons) you tald that if you advise something you should tell him/her without …ing structure. I got 80% from 10 question, I had two mistakes and they are connected with …ing

achraf-1

for my first time,after all these lessons i only got 4 out of 10.this was a little confusing to me Alex.i have a question.it could be a stupid question but im curious.is this american english or canadian english,because i live with american people and i even asked one of my roomates about the quiz and he told me i was right

cupil27

‘thankos’ my fault sorry

achraf-1

I thought a little confusing… But I got 9/10. Maybe I should review it tomorrow. Anyway, thank you, Alex!

Sally S

Hi Alex! Thanks for your lesson. I got 9/10 because I used my common sense for the question “What do you suggest me to do?”. I’ve never heard “What do you suggest doing?” Maybe I was wrong the whole life. But if “What do you suggest doing?” is grammatically correct, who would be the object of such question?
Greeting from Thailand!

shesnat

    Hi everyone, Cambridge Dictionary online tells us that it is a typical error.

    • We don’t use suggest + indirect object + to-infinitive when we suggest an action to someone:
    He suggested that I should apply for a job in a bank or insurance company.
    Not: He suggested me to apply …
    • We don’t use suggest + to-infinitive:
    Henry wanted to tell everyone, but Dora suggested waiting until the news had been announced officially.
    Not: Dora suggested to wait …

    2. The doctor recommended (that) I take more exercises. (Subjunctive form; looks as a wish of the speaker.) I’ve learned also that the doctor advised me to take more exercises.

    Paperback5

Haha, so I had a new trick, verbs begun with vowel will followed by the to + infinitive.

nguyenhungdk

    That is a nice tip my fiend.

xx0903xx

Good lesson! 70%

Everton Andrade

It’s a very clean lesson. Learned a lot with it.
Thanks

odairto

Thanks

Kerri Mohammed

Hi Alex, I think you should make it clear that verbs like Advice and Urge usually are followed by a gerund but in case are followed by noun or pronoun they require TO+inf. It took me a while to find out that. The contradiction comes from that they are in the list of Verbs followed by a gerund. Correct me if i’m mistaken?!

elinman

many thanks for teacher, and this invitation to all friends to communication together.

anwar

Hi Alex, it is very interesting lesson

moezbesbes

Wow, thanks Alex. This topic was one of the most confusing grammars of English for me. Your crystal clear explanation about how to advice in English helps me a lot.

Yourdadediduday

hi there!i’m a new learner, nice to meet you all!by the way, this lesson is so helpful,though its hard to remember.

CANTHO

thank you very much for this lesson, very helpful but this one sounds weird for me, “”What do you suggest doing?” is more understandable say, What do you suggest me to do, i mean “suggest doing” sounds weird..
“What do you suggest doing? is like an incomplete phrase..
In advance, thanks for your opinion

AndersonBanquet

noo, it is a littler bit confusing

planetloco

i got 90, thanks alot Alex.

innocent khan

He did nothing but cry
He has no choice but to obey …
Regrds

Good day! First of all I would like to thank you for this nice lesson! Engvid is the best website for learning Englsih! I’ve passed the quiz below the video and I can’t understand why I can’t say in the last question “She has advised ME QUIT” if I can say “I advise YOU UPDATE”. Explain me, please! Thank you.

Stan28

I’ve just got 9/10. This is a little confusing for all of us, because I’m pretty sure we have heard some native speakers saying those mistakes. Oh, God, why English is the lingua franca, why??? It’s supposed to be the Spanish, haha.

Dear Alex

Thank you for the great explanation video

I just want to ask you one question
I was reading a book and found this: “I recommended she return in morning”
Q: Why the writer uses return instead of returns? (The subject is she)

Thanks in advance

kahuco

Malgré cette excellente leçon, je crains de faire encore des fautes.
Merci Alex.

beernaard

The first time i saw the lesson i had only 6/10, but i have watched it again and now have 9/10, thank you, Alex!

tacagero

Hi Alex! Alex, explain the last answer in the quiz, please! I think, we can use both answers?

Tatiana

    Hi Tatiana. I think you are right acording to Alex, his explanations, “She has advised me quit.” must be correct. Isn’t this right? Alex?

    Ceiji

Hi, Alex
I little bit confused.
You said “I advise + you update +…” is right.
So why this one isn’t right: “They advised me take lessons”?

However I think that “They advised taking lessons” is right too because “I advise + updating +…” is right too.

catfelix

    Hi catefelix. I agree with you. I’m cofused

    Ceiji

i got 3 out of 10 :(

Denny

byildirim

Hi Alex. Thank you for the great lessons. But I’m wondering No.6 answer isn’t” my calling”. Isn’t that” me calling”?
Isn’t that typo?

Ceiji

Hi Alex. I made a mistake. I asked you a wrong question. No.6 answer is correct. I found it just now.

Ceiji

Hallo, Alex!
Thanks a lot for the useful lesson!
We have a question. What is a difference between ADVICE and ADVISE?
ADVICE is a noun and ADVISE is a verb, are we right?

Andrew and Julia

Thank you, Alex, for making this topic clear and understandable. I really appreciate it.
Best regards,

heshamemad
