Advise vs Advice

This time I advise you to read my lesson so you will no longer need advice which word to use. Advice and advise - these words are often confused in English. Let's learn something about them!


Advice is a noun. It means a suggestion about what someone should do. It's an opinion that someone offers you about what you should do or how you should act in a particular situation.

We need some advice.

John gave me some good advice.

Can I give you a piece of advice?

If you're sick, stay home. That's my advice.

Advice is uncountable. If you want to use advice in a countable way, then we use the phrase a piece of advice.

I have two pieces of advice for you about the holiday.

Synonyms: recommendation, suggestion, option.


Advise is a verb. It means to give someone advice, to offer a suggestion about what to do.

We need you to advise us about something.

I strongly advise you to lose weight.

They finally did what we advised.

If you're sick, I advise you to stay home.

Synonyms: to give advice, to recommend, to make a recommendation, to suggest, to make a suggestion, to offer an opinion, to counsel.
