Making a suggestion is a simple as combining the word si, meaning “if, with the imperfect tense. You can use this construction in sentences such as “what about going to the cinema?” or “do you fancy eating out tonight”. You’ll learn how to use the construction, and Mark will test your understanding of it with some translation challenges against the clock.
