Suggestions and Advice in Spanish.
First of all: What are suggestions and advice?
Making a suggestion is not exactly the same as asking a question. When we make a suggestion, we suggest a possible course of action to the other person and the other person will appraise our suggestion and maybe answer.
Giving advice is similar to making a suggestion but it is usually person A presenting a series of advisable ideas to person B.
Lots of Spanish courses require you to know about making suggestions and giving advice, also it is very useful.
There are a couple of examples of the subjunctive in the examples.
Te aconsejo que te quedes. Literally: I advise you that you stay - Translates as: I advise you to stay.
We often see the subjunctive in a 2 part sentence separated by "que"
By the way "quedar" is a very useful verb we have a page about it here
Note from the pedantic grammar police
Did you know that British people have terrible problems with advice and advise.
On social media people make mistakes all the time but I am too polite to say anything.
Here is an unsolicited lesson:
Advice is a noun: I'll give you a piece of advice: Said like "Cold as ICE"
Advise is a verb: I can advise you if you want. Said like "For your EYES only"
What I have just given you is "consejo no solicitado" Uncalled for advice.
Here is a suggestion: Watch Netflix in Spanish but turn down the velocity setting so that it is a little slower than usual.
