Please note that "want" would be less formal than "wish" in letters.

Re: "have a suggestion": the commonest usage is as a stand-alone sentence, followed by a full-stop. See here:

If the phrase is followed by "for", then "for" preposes the purpose or the person. It is not normal to follow "suggestion" with an "accusative/infinitive" construction. Neither "suggestion", nor "suggest" is normally followed by an infinitive. Thus, neither "I suggest you to employ ..." is grammatically okay, nor is "I have a suggestion for you to employ...".

1. I wanted to tell you some information is not correct.

2. The festival holds in December 24th every year.

Note the section on grammar patterns.

https://www.google.com/search?q=%22to%20bring%20different%20aspects%20of%22&tbm=bks&lr=lang_en

If you are going to use the phrase "to bring different aspects", then it needs to be followed by "of + NOUN".

Thank you for correction.
So if I write: "I suggest you employ people..."
Is it OK?

Mirabella

Yes, that's okay. One good trick is always to follow "suggest" with "that", as this helps to get the grammar correct. Thus: I suggest that you employ people ....

Not knowing how to use "suggest" properly is the #1 blunder by non-native speakers; second would be "informations", "advices", "equipments", "furnitures", "staffs", which are mostly uncountable.

Hello Simon,

I recently finished an IELTS test on July,29th, 2019 and result was not ideal. Please kindly look into below task 1 question and kindly advise the proper way to answer the question.

Your company donates and holds events to help certain groups in the community every year. Please write a letter to your company director and suggest the group you would like to help next year:
- explain which group of people you would like you help and why
- what would you suggest your company to do in terms of help the group
- how would it benefit you company

Thank you gioletta!

"search employees": this would imply a body-search like the police or border officers do when searching for drugs.
-> search for employees

-> in order to utilize their knowledge about their own country.
