the verb suggest

Dear Speak Up, I’m a high school student and I am going to take the PET Exam. I am also a new reader of Speak Up since a friend of my let me know about this magazine a few months ago. Here is my question: I would like to know more about the verb “suggest”. Is it better to say “I suggest to you to visit…” or “I suggest you visiting…” or “I suggest visiting…” as well? Many thanks. Pietro

Welcome Pietro! The first 2 forms you mention are not acceptable. You can say “I SUGGEST you VISIT a doctor” or “as it was a sunny day, I SUGGESTED we WENT to the beach”. I SUGGEST VISITING is also ok, as in “would you SUGGEST VISITING Alaska in the Winter?”
