Advice and advise


People often visit GCSE.com for advice - which is great! Advice is a noun, it's something we can give you.

Advise, on the other hand, is a verb. We can't give it, but we can do it! We can advise you on how to do fractions, for example.

"I would advise you to visit GCSE.com," said the Maths teacher.
"It offers some great advice."

Another similar confusion is Practice and practise - new!, where you can learn how to learn the difference!
