Hello everyone,

I want to use "Put forward" more competently, so am I doing well in that sentence?

* Because I am the head of the students, I would like to put my suggestions forward for the person whom I would like to invite. ( An Essay about inviting a famous person to give a speech in our school)

(Not a Teacher)

Here's my take:

"As student head (meaning head of the student body), I would like to put my suggestions forward for whom we should invite."

You used "put forward" correctly, I just thought I'd make the sentence a little shorter and more to the point.

In AmE and in that context I think you would more often hear "present" or "offer" rather than "put forward".

If that's your reaction when people happen to be a little too busy to voluntarily give up their free time as fast as you would like, you may find that you get even fewer responses.
 
I'm so sorry!
