Advice vs Advise | Ask Linda! | English Grammar

In this video Linda breaks down the difference between “advice” and “advise”.

These words are often confused due to their similar spellings.

Let’s take a closer look:

“Advice” spelled with a C is a noun and describes a proposal for an appropriate course of action.

Example:

Please give us some advice about planning a trip to France.

“Advise” spelled with an S is a verb and describes the action of giving advice or offering a suggestion.

I advised them to visit the Pyramids of Giza when they are in Egypt.

Therefore, we use “advice” as a noun and “advise” as a verb.

That’s it for today. See you next time!
