    She suggests ....

    Hi,

    I am writing to ask about the sentence below.

    She suggests me working quickly. Is it correct to say this situation this way grammatically and meaningly.

    Thanks:)

    suggest takes a 'that' clause, like this,

    She suggests that I work quickly.
    She suggests that we work quickly.

    'that' can be omitted, like this,

    She suggests I work quickly.
    She suggests we work quickly.

    Notice the subject of the 'that' clause is I, we.

    Here's a near synonym for the verb suggest: want. That verb takes me, like this,

    She wants me to work quickly.
    She wants us to work quickly.

    Notice the object of the verb want is me, us.

    All the best,
