Advice Given

Monday, August 27, 2012

My previous post offered several ways on how to ask for advice (in case you need it) and today you'll be on the other side of the question as the advice giver. How do you speak to someone when they want your guidance, ideas, or suggestions?

Let's pretend your friend has a headache and says, "My head hurts. What should I do?"
(Can you think of another way to ask for help? - a little test for you).

There are a multitude of responses to this question, for example:

If I were you, I would take two aspirins.
Why don't you go to the doctor?
You'd better reduce the stress in your life.
You ought to/should wear your glasses.
It might be a good idea to take a nap.
I advise you to get a massage.
Have you thought about drinking something that contains caffeine, like coffee or a Coke?

(My advice for you is to read my blog often!)
