Encourage, suggest, propose

Could you make a sentence using the following three verbs.

  1. encourage
  2. suggest
  3. propose

I would like to know the differences in nuances among them.


I suggest that on the Vocabulary Page you enter each of these terms and you will see lots of examples from your listening and reading. These will be real examples.

The result was “No terms match your search.” for each verb.
Thank you for your example sentence.


I got two examples for “propose”, one for “suggest”, and 6 for “encourage”.

Propose and suggest are essentially the same.You suggest or propose and idea, a plan, an action.

Encourage is different. You encourage someone to do something.

That is to say when I searched for each term I got a LingQ box and clicked on “examples” to see these examples. What did you do?

I suppose I am not good at using the function. Thank you for your replies.

You have to use the Add a Term area. I can see where this can be confusing.

Search a Term is for searching your list of words. There you can search by suffix, prefix, or parts of words. This is useful to see related or similar words.

The Add a Term or List of Terms is lower down the page and is for adding or looking up new terms. If the term is already on your vocab list, this will also find it.

I have just understood the function. It is extremely useful.

I hope we can see the description about this very useful function, on our wiki site.

“the description about” should read "the description of. " Sorry.

Yutaka-san, are you a perfectionist?

I am just a “diligent” student. :slight_smile:

Als ich jung war, studierte ich sehr hart der deutschen Sprache, über die ich fast alles vergessen zu haben. (Dieser Satz ist korrekt? Dies wurde durch “Google Translate” übersetzt.)

Könnten Sie Sätze mit den folgenden drei Verben.

  1. “zu fördern”
  2. “schlagen”
  3. “schlägt”

Ich möchte die Unterschiede in den Nuancen zwischen ihnen wissen.
(Was halten Sie von dieser Übersetzungen.)

I like the German language.

It means “Thank-you” very politely in Japanese.

ありがとうございました。 (I hope you are right.)

slightly unrelated
I also suggest learning the differences between convince and persuade

you convince someone that a face is true/false

you persuade someone to do something

Большое спасибо.

Lol. I would be a huge language faker if I lied about that. I should have let Yutaka M. speak for himself, though.

You are full of language surprises!
