~도록 하다

Please do...

TL;DR

Tell someone else to do something in a manner between a suggestion and a command. It’s a bit stronger than a suggestion, but less strong than a direct command.

Detailed Explanation

  • Used to instruct or suggest someone do something
  • Equivalent to "Please do..."

Usage

  • Stronger than ~아/어 보세요 ("Why don't you try...")
  • Weaker than ~(으)세요 ("Do, please")
  • ONLY: imperative/propositive sentences so cannot use ~아/어서 to give a reason in first clause
  • Can answer with: ~도록 하겠습니다 "I will do so.")
