How to Say Suggest in Spanish

If you want to say “suggest” in Spanish, you have several options depending on how you’re using it. If you’re talking about proposing something, you’d use “sugerir” or “proponer.” If you giving advice based on your experience, you would want to use “aconsejar.” On the other hand, if you are implying something the best choice would be “insinuar.” Here are some examples of how the different options are used in everyday conversation.

Mi amigo sugirió vernos para almorzar. / My friend suggested we meet for lunch.

Propuse varias ideas diferentes. / I suggested a number of different ideas.

Les aconsejo visitar el Prado en Madrid. / I suggest you visit the Prado in Madrid.

¿Está insinuando que esto es mi culpa? / Are you suggesting it’s my fault?

Getting comfortable with Spanish verbs that are used in different ways can take some time. But remember, you don’t have to tackle them all at once. As you move forward on your language journey, you’ll learn to distinguish the exact meaning of the word through the context of the sentence.

Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the language, not just the words. What makes it effective is that we prepare you to use your new language in your everyday life. So it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. It helps you get ready to handle situations with confidence.

Learn Spanish Words and Phrases

For new language learners, there are some basic building blocks that are a great place to start. These are essential Spanish words and phrases such as who, what, when, where, why, yes, no, please, and more. Mastering these basics can put you on the path to having everyday conversations in Spanish. Here’s a more complete list of the basic words and phrases:

¿Quién? / Who?

¿Qué? / What?

¿Por qué? / Why?

¿Dónde? / Where?

/ Yes

No / No

Hola / Hello

Me gusta / I like

No me gusta / I don’t like

Adiós / Goodbye

Por favor / Please

Gracias / Thank you

Lo siento / Sorry

Salud / Bless you

Good news: if you already speak another major European language, learning Spanish should go smoothly. Because English, just as Italian and French, has deep roots in Latin, and these languages all share thousands of words with contemporary Spanish. These shared words are called cognates and have significant similarities in spelling and/or pronunciation. That’s why you’ll notice that there are many English words and phrases like the word “air” that sound remarkably similar in French (air), Italian (aria), and Spanish (aire).

To improve your pronunciation, you’ll want immediate feedback on your efforts. Feedback will guide you in making needed corrections. Rosetta Stone helps you dial in your pronunciation with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. TruAccent compares your voice to native and non-native speakers—in real-time—so you get the feedback you need for the most accurate pronunciation. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to tweak your accent as needed. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak the Spanish language.

Once you have learned to pronounce basic words and short phrases, it’s a natural transition to move to the longer phrases you’ll use in everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone’s short, 10-minute lessons are built in just this way—first teaching the basics, then tackling the longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to speak Spanish with confidence.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
