    Dear Teacher,

    Which of the following sentences is correct:

    1. Please advise us.

    or

    2. Please advice us.

    What is the difference between these two?

    Regards,

    Sweetie

    Hi

    "Please advise us" is the correct one
    For your information,
    "advice" is a noun whereas "advise" is a verb

    If you want to use "advice", you have to say like
    "Please give advice" because in this sentence it is used as noun.

    Advice : An opinion as to a decision or course of action
    Advise : To offer advice

    Hope you will be clear!!!!
