    Hi. :D
    Thank one of this forum members for having answered my previous questions.
    I want to reply directly to your explanation but for some reasons - I don't know what they exactly are- I can't log in now.


    I would like teachers and members to compare similar words below.

    ==========================================
    The company consultant suggested conducting a media orientation on the project.

    The company consultant proposed conducting a media orientation on the project.
    =============================================

    Is there any difference between two sentences above?


    Thank you for reading my questions and

    please kindly answer them.

    Have a nice day! :wink:

    No, same meaning.
    One could argue that 'to suggest' is more of a piece of advice, whereas 'to propose' means the speaker is ready for action if his proposal is accepted. This is a slight nuance though, and is probably not worth discussing about.

    We can have a discussion about something. We can also talk about or talk over something, but we do not discuss about something.
