I suggest | apologise | recommend

Point 21 in the category of PRESENT/simple is defined:

a limited range of speech act verbs, including ‘suggest’, ‘apologise’, ‘recommend’.


*Some of these will clash with C1:  suggest-recommend-insist + present-simple


 

PELIC STUDENT EXAMPLE:

In conclusion,

I suggest that international students whose English abilities are not strong enough

should study in the ELI for at least one term before attending colleges or universities.
