Synonyms of "Recommend" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between recommend and suggest ?
A: "recommend" is when you tried something or are sure that the thing is good, so you recommend it to others, with approval as being suitable (يوصي، ينصح)

Ex:

I really recommend this restaurant as it has the best steak I've had.

Do you have any hotel recommendations?

I recommend this website because it's really fast.


Suggest is more like to give an opinion for something, doesn't have the same strong feel of approval as "recommend". (يقترح)

Ex:

I suggest we stay indoors today as the weather is bad, what do you think?

Do you have any suggestions for dinner meals?
Q: What is the difference between recommend and suggest and propose ?
A: You are welcome!

A recommendation/suggestion is usually given to help a person avoid a bad situation. We don't really recommend someone to do something bad.

For example: You help your friend find a new shirt at the store. When they try it on, it does not fit properly. You don't want your friend to look bad, so you suggest/recommend they get a different size.
Q: What is the difference between I recommend you to eat this and I recommend that you eat this ?
A: They are both OK for speaking. In writing, use the second. It is true that the "that" can frequently be left out in English, but it is necessary in this sentence.
Q: What is the difference between I would recommend that you read it and I would recommend you to read it ?
A: The first one is proper if you are recommending the book for him to read. The second one means that you are going to recommend (to someone else) that he be the person who reads the book. The other way you would use the second example is like "I'm going to recommend you for the new job opening", meaning that you will go to the boss and recommend that your friend get the new position.
Q: What is the difference between recommend to-infinitive and recommend gerund ?
A: Recommend + verb must always be the gerund, you cannot use the infinitive.

Other questions about "Recommend"

Q: I highly recommend you to go abroad to study. does this sound natural?
A:

I did some more research on this, and grammatically, "recommend you to" is correct, but the emphasis is on the 'you'. So, it would have the meaning of recommending YOU (among a lot of people) to study abroad.

Example:
Out of everyone in this class, the teacher recommended you to study abroad.
Among all his employees, the boss recommended you to promote.

But I think from everyone else's response, it seems your original sentence sounds awkward.
Q: I recommend you to avoid doing this. does this sound natural?
A: I (would) recommend you avoid doing that/this.
Q: I was asked that "What's your recommend if I go to Japan?" many times.
does this sound natural?

Q: What your recommend TV-series do you have? does this sound natural?
A: that's better, but still a little unnatural. "What is your recommendation for TV series" would be more correct.
