    It is "grammar". A man walked up to another man in New York and asked "How do I get to Carnegie Hall?" The other man said "Practice, practice, practice". I suggest the same for you.

    As Mike said, practise! However, we can give you a quick lesson on how to improve your written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".

    On this forum, please don't use textspeak/chatlish - there is no such word as "pls".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: impovement

    If anybody's confused, practice in AE is both the noun and the verb.

    In BE, practice is the noun and practise is the verb.

    I thought "licence" is the same, but it is the other way round.
    License is both a noun and a verb in AmE.
    In BrE, licence is a noun and license is a verb.

    Re: impovement

    "Advise" and "advice" are verb and noun respectively in both BrE and AmE. They are not interchangeable like "practice".
    I am not a teacher.

    They are abbreviations for British English and American English. There are differences in spelling and usage between the two.

    That's right, and as they are pronounced differently, these two words are particularly helpful for BE speakers to remember the distinction between practise/practice and license/licence.

    The one with the s is the verb and the one with the c is the noun.

    Could you give us some example sentences using practice, practise, advice, advise, license, and licence?
