    It is recommended that you go...

    "It is recommended that you go there" and "It is recommended that you should go there."

    "It is suggested that you go there" and "It is suggested that you should go there."

    Please tell me if any of the four clauses above are incorrect and correct them accordingly.
    P.S. Please correct any errors above.

    Re: It is recommended that you go...

    "I recommend that you go there" is more natural.

    Re: It is recommended that you go...

    Can you supply some context for those sentences?

    Re: It is recommended that you go...

    "It is recommended that you should consult your doctor". From here the doubt was risen.
    P.S. Please correct any errors above.

    Re: It is recommended that you go...

    'The word "should" is sometimes used to express the idea of subjunctiveness. This form is used more frequently in British English and is most common after the verbs "suggest," "recommend" and "insist".' ── quoted from http://www.englishpage.com/minitutor...bjunctive.html

    Do you have some context for that? Also, where did you find that?

    I would have doubts about that too. It's very unnatural.
