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 !
