We have been giving each other advice in class lately so let's review the vocabulary.
ADVICE = the noun (the C is pronounced like an S)
ADVISE = the verb (the S is pronounced like a Z)
Other verb forms
TAKE MY ADVICE
NOTE that advice is one of those substantive nouns that must always be singular. Here are some examples of its use:
- Our grandfather provided us with lots of sage advice. (Nuestro abuelo nos proporcionaba muchos consejos sabios).
- We gave her some useful advice but she would not heed our words. (Le dimos consejos útiles pero no nos hizo caso en lo que le habíamos dicho).
- That was not a very good piece of advice. (Eso no fue un buen consejo).
- He took my advice but he was not very gracious about it. (Recibió nuestro consejo pero no parecía muy agradecido.)
