    What I suggest for you is taking

    Hi:

    *self-made*

    1- What I can suggest for you is taking notes while listening to the video.

    2- What I can suggest for you is to take notes while listening to the video.

    3- What I can suggest to you is taking notes while listening to the video.

    I cannot make sure which one is OK. In mı opinion, only sentence 1 is OK. What do you think?

    Thanks.

    It's difficult to comment on such unnatural sentences.

    You could just say 'I suggest you take notes while listening to the video.'

    Sentence 2 is the least unnatural.
