Difference between Practise or Practice?

What is the difference between Practise and Practice or Advice and Advise?


This is a common problem that even native speakers have problems with occasionally.

Practise and Advise are verbs

Practice is a noun or an adjective

Advice is a noun


If you want to speak good English:

  • You must practise a lot
  • Reading English every day is good practice
  • There are a number of Practice tests on this website
  • Could you give me some advice, please?
  • My teacher advised me to spend my summer in an English speaking country

Good idea for remembering which is the noun:

Think that “ice” is a noun, but “ise” isn’t.

So the words that finish in “ice” are nouns(or adjectives).

The words that finish in “ise” are NOT
