If you don’t know what to do and want some advice you can ask the following questions:

  • What shall I do?
  • What should I do?
  • What do you think I should do?
  • Could you give me some/a piece of advice*?
  • (*Note: advice is uncountable in English, so there is no ’an advice’!)

If you’d like to give advice you can use the following structures:

  • I think you should…..
  • I think you shouldn’t ……..
  • Why don’t you…………?
  • You could………
  • If I were you I would…..
  • I think it would be good if you……….*

(*use the second conditional – past form – after “if” !)

Example dialogue:

  • I have broken my car. I need to go to work tomorrow. What shall I do?
  • If I were you I would ask my parents to lend their car. Or if they want to use it, I think it would be good if you used public transport.
  • Thanks for the advice, I’ll think about it.
