English is confusing sometimes. Even my advanced students sometimes have problem in identifying the correct words.
For example, what is the difference between advise and advice? How to differentiate between advise and advice? How about devise and device?
Before that, one of them is a noun and the other is a verb. So how to identify which is which?
The solution is as easy as singing Negaraku.
For words such as advice and device, they are nouns. While for words like advise and devise, they are verbs. Have you spotted the similarities?
Yes, for those ending with ce, such as advice and device, they are nouns while words ending with se, such as advise and devise, they are verbs.
Isn't that simple? Now, just keep that in mind and you wont be confused anymore. Thank you class.
