Grammar Wednesday

Advice vs. advise

Advice is a noun – it’s the something you give to someone seeking your guidance:

Can you give me some advice about choosing colleges?

Advise is a verb – it’s what you do when you’re offering said guidance:

I would advise you to visit a number of colleges and talking to a lot of people before you make your choice.
