Bahasa dan Sastra Inggris XI 2 : Offers and Suggestions


Please read and write it down in your book.

Good morning
students, welcome to the eleventh grade.

In this chapter you
are going to learn about the expressions of suggesting. Before we
start this lesson let’’s pray to Allah so that we can understand
the materials in this chapter well.

As the materials I
gave you last week, we know that suggestion is an idea or plan put
forward for consideration. In our life, sometimes we need to ask for
other’s suggestion. On the other hands, we sometimes give our
suggestion to other as well. Do you know how to ask for and give
suggestion ? You will find out about some expressions you can to ask
for and give suggestion in this chapter.

Now, pay attention
to this situation. When your friend wants to go home but the sky is
dark and it seems like it will rain soon. If you are in this
situation, what will you suggest to your friend whose house is quite
far from school ? Yes, you may say, “You’d better go now.” or “
You’d better use the umbrella or raincoat.” Those are expressions
of giving suggestion. When someone gives a suggestion to you, you can
either accept the suggestion or reject it politely. You will also
find some more examples of how to accept and reject suggestion in
this chapter.

Well, lets’ begin
the lesson now !
