- For Teachers
Hi every one
I am a brand new friend
I wish you can help me
I am always getting confused between advise and advice and I have no idea what the difference is. I use advise always but the spelling checker mark it as a wrong worm. Please advise me what is right.
I advise you to take my advice.
That's some good advice, Cas.
Is the following sentence correct ?
I advise that he do nothing - I know that the verb "advise" is followed by a subjunctive.
Should I say : I advise that he should do nothing.
Which of the two sentences above is the more used in spoken English?
Is there any other way [in other words] to express the idea in this sentence?
Thank you very much in advance.
No, you wouldn't be likely to encounter that structure in either spoken or written English. More likely:I advise him to do nothing.
You could also say:I think he should do nothing.Of course, you wouldn't be using advise in that sentence.
