    Do you have confusion with Advice vs Advise?

    I am also expecting easy and simple way of understanding the terms Advice & Advise.

    I get them confused sometimes. They're so close in spelling that if you aren't careful the switch can sneak up on you. I try to remember to pronounce advise in head with a hard "z" so it sounds more like an action. I don't know if that makes sense but it worked for me.

    The act of giving someone information is "advice." While you are using this noun, it then becomes a verb as you are "advising" them.

    Advice is a noun, advise, a verb. In a sentence, you might say, "I advise you never to give me advice no matter how much I might need it."

    No. Advice is what I give, advise is what I do. Advice is a noun, advise is a verb transition.
    " I gave the woman advice about her marital conflict."
    " I advised her to seek legal counsel regarding separation."
    " I would advise her to speak to her attorney about her alternatives."
