Offer and Suggest — упражнения

Remember:

Глаголы offer и suggest различаются как по смыслу, так и структурно. Offer близок по значению к русским словам «дать», «угостить» и «вызваться», а suggest — к словам «посоветовать», «выдвинуть идею». После offer идет или существительное, или инфинитив, а после suggest – существительное, герундий или придаточное предложение. Подробно обо всем этом можно почитать в статье «В чем разница между offer и suggest?»
