Common Errors
2015/05/26
This week, we are going to focus on some common errors to avoid in your writing. The first error is very common in Taiwan.
 
Task 1: Study the error box.
 Frequent Error Box 1: suggest
Wrong
Right
 I suggest you to go home.
 
 I suggest to start again.
 
 I suggest we should start now.
 
 I suggest we can start now.
 
 I suggest we must start now.
 I suggest that you go home.
 
 I suggest starting again. / I suggest that we start again.
 
 I suggest that we start now.
 
 I suggest that we start now.
 
 I suggest that we start now.
Notes:
*Don’t use ‘suggest to V’. It’s wrong.
 
*Don’t use ‘suggest you to V’. It’s wrong.
 
*Don’t use suggest with ‘must’, ‘can’ or ‘should’. Just use the present simple in the second clause: ‘we start now’.
 
As you can see, you have probably been using ‘suggest’ wrongly for a long time already! Try to change! Here’s another common error. 
 Frequent Error Box 2:  request
Wrong
Right
 I request for a pay rise.
 
 I request to transfer to another department.
 
 I request you to stop smoking.
 
 I request a pay rise. / I put in a request for a pay rise.
 
 I request a transfer to another department.
 
 I request that you stop smoking.
Notes:
Don’t use ‘make s/o to V’ or ‘let s/o to V.’
Use ‘be made to V’ if you want to use ‘make’ in the passive.
Use ‘be allowed to V’ if you want to use ‘let’ in the passive.
 
Task 3: Correct these sentences. Use the error boxes to help you.
I suggest you to talk to your boss.
 
I request you to send me payment as soon as possible.
 
I request you for coming to the meeting.
 
I suggest you can take a holiday tomorrow.
 
He suggested us to start as soon possible.
 
I suggest you should work harder.
 
She requested for a vacation.
