Making suggestions • After a long night out with friends, you realize you’re too tired to walk back home. How do you suggest taking a taxi? • Why don’t we take a taxi? • Let’s take a taxi. • Shall we take a taxi? • What about taking a taxi?
And how do you answer? • Yes, that’s fine. • OK • No, I don´t think that’s a good idea.
Be careful: • Why don´t we + infinitive • Let’s + infinitive • Shall we + infinitive • What/How about + -ing
