Giving Advice – English Language Phrases

giving advice

Each time I choose EFL/ESL videos for my online lessons, I almost always opt for IELTS series  by Australia Network, because they are so thorough and there’s so much repetition of the target language. This time it’s the language of giving advice. Before writing a few useful phrases, let me give you the link to the tanscript pdf file as well as study notes along with this video and the activities 🙂

Formal phrases:

  • You ought to…
  • You ought not to..
  • If I were in your position, I would…
  • You had better…

 

Semi-formal phrases:

  • I think you should + infinitive  …
  • I don’t think you should…
  • Maybe you should + infinitive …
  • If I were you, I would…

 

***Book a 50 min Skype lesson to practise ONLY what you need to improve your English and feel more confident when speaking.***

Informal phrases:

  • Why don’t you + infinitive … ?
  • How about + verb-ing … ?
  • Why don’t you + gerund (verb-ing)… ?

 

There are many more phrases which are great for giving advice, divided according to the levels at Englisih Club 🙂
