Advice vs Advise - English Grammar - Teaching Tips


This video covers the difference between 'advice' and 'advise'. As these two words have a similar pronunciation and spelling, their usage is often confused. In fact, the two words are both are from the same word stem but 'advice' is the noun and 'advise' is the verb. Therefore, their usages are not the same. 'Advice' refers to a proposal for an appropriate course of action. Please give us some advice about planning a trip to France. In this example, we use 'advice' because it is the noun. When we want to describe the action of giving advice or offering a suggestion, we use the verb, or 'advise' spelled with an 's'. A good example would be: I advised them to visit the Pyramids of Giza when they are in Egypt.

As a new teacher, I found this course to be a informative, enlightening and a little challenge. This was all new information for me, and requires some digesting! Given that I plan to do most of my teaching online, it will be interesting to see how many of these area fit in the online environment. Overall, another excellent course, and I look forward to moving on to the next!It is so very much confusing, that even for me it was a bit difficult to think as the rules go. Sometimes it is much easier to start speaking the way we hear the natives speaking it. And then when we hear it pretty often, we know that it should sounds like 'this' but we get lost when the rule comes up with the phrase. It was noted very good, that it has to be taught slow, only!
