ADVISE OR ADVICE?
In British English advise (with "s") is the verb; and advice (with "c") is the noun. Let´s check some examples:
- I advise you not to go to Peru in this time of the year. It´s better to go in January.
- She advised me to take the FCE exam in June.
- Listen to my advice and go to Peru in January when it´s sunny.
- Her advice was to take the FCE exam in June.
*Note: Because advice is uncountable, it´s not possible to say advices.
Incorrect: She gave me advices. Correct: She gave me some advice.
