Advice vs Advise

The main difference between advice vs advise is that “advice” (with a C) is a noun: an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide to action. On the other hand, “advise” (with an S) is a verb, which means to recommend or to give information to someone.

We can think about the advice and advise in the following way:


Advice is always a noun, meaning counsel, guidance or a recommendation on a course of action.

Advice is something you give, take, receive or use, i.e. it is a thing (recommendation) given to, or taken from, someone.

Example: I will ask the doctor for advice on what to do about my sore throat.


Advise is always a verb, meaning to give counsel or to offer a recommendation on a course of action.

Advise is something you do, or someone does, i.e. perform the action of advising.

Example: I advise you to get some professional medical help before the trip.
