Giving Advice Intermediate B1-B2


Asking for advice:

  • I've got a bad toothache. What do you suggest?
  • What do you advise me to do?
  • What should I do?
  • What ought I to do?
  • What's your advice?
  • If you were me what would you do?

Giving advice

  • If I were you, I would go to the dentist.
  • Why don't you go to the dentist?
  • You'd better brush your teeth regularly.
  • You ought to/should avoid eating sweets.
  • If you take my advice, you'll go to the dentist.
  • It might be a good idea to brush your teeth on a regular basis.
  • I advise you to brush your teeth on a regular basis.
  • Have you thought about seeing a dentist.

Declining to give advice

  • I don't know what to advise, I'm afraid.
  • I wish I could suggest something, but I can't.
  • I wish I could help.
  • I'm afraid I can't really help you.

"You'd better" is the short form of "you had better"
"You'd better see a doctor!" = "You had better see the doctor"

Study the dialogue:

Student:I'm terrible at English and I think I should do something about it. What do you advise me to do?
Teacher:I think you should try this website. It's a fantastic website for beginners.
Student:I've heard about it, but what do you think I should start with?
Teacher:You'd better start with the lessons.Then, try the exercises.
