In work situations, people are continually making suggestions in English. It could be about something simple, like where to go for lunch. Or it could be about a complex problem, like how to increase sales. You might make a suggestion in English to one person, or to a whole group of people in a meeting.
Making a suggestion means stating one possible option. And that’s why we often use a question to make a suggestion, such as “What about…” or “Have you tried…” And with these expressions, you have to use the -ing form of the verb, such as “What about asking our manager?” But there are other English expressions that just use the base form of the verb, without adding -ing. The expressions “Why don’t we…” and “Let’s…” both work in this way. For example, we might say “Why don’t we go to Spain?”
