It’s a lovely day. Let’s go for a picnic.
I’m thirsty. How about a cup of tea?
I’m free this afternoon. Why don’t we go to the cinema?
There’s a new restaurant in Queen Street. Shall we go there?
How did you get on? Did you manage to sound enthusiastic or apologetic? It’s not always easy to judge your own intonation, so you might want to ask someone else if you sound natural.
Although polite intonation is important, you don’t want to overdo it. It will sound weird.
That’s everything for the topic of making suggestions in English. Thanks for watching!
