There are different ways of giving advice or making recommendations. When giving well-meant advice in the wrong tone and with the wrong choice of words, it may be misinterpreted as an order or a warning. This page will help you to choose the right words in the appropriate situation.

  • Don't you think it would be better if you ... ?

  • Pardon me, but it seems to me that it might be better if you ...
