You can find a transcript on my website English plus podcast calm and better yet, if you are a patron, you will get exclusive Episodes Series and resources to take your English and learning to the next level. You can find the links in the description of the episode. And now without further ado, let’s talk about common mistakes with the word advice. So let me start with this example. My headmaster gave me a good advice on choosing a career, but look at it or actually listen to it. Think about it. What’s wrong with this? Well, it’s good. It’s okay. My headmaster gave me a good advice on choosing a career. What can be wrong with that? Well, the problem is that advice is an uncountable noun and it is not used with a or N. It is uncountable. You can say a or n advice, right? We should say my headmaster gave me some good advice on choosing a career. That’s perfectly fine, but not a good advice. Okay. Remember that advice is an uncountable noun. So never ever use it with a or n or one for example. Now, for another common mistake. I would like your advice for how to keep fit. I would like your advice for how to keep fit. What can be wrong with that? Well, I didn’t use a or n here. What’s wrong now? Well, the problem is not with the countable or uncountable noun. We didn’t have a problem with that here. But we have a problem with the way we continued the sentence. We said I would like your advice for how to keep fit. That’s not the way to go. We should say advice on or about how to do something. So I should say I would like your advice on how to keep fit or about how to keep fit, but not for all right, remember that we give advice to people on how to do things or on something obviously, or about something not for a right now for the last example and the last common mistake I would like to share with you in today’s episode, he advised me to start looking for another job. What’s wrong with that? We can use advice as a verb right? Well, not exactly not the same actually. We don’t say advice with a d v i c e because that is the noun advice as a verb becomes a d V I S E not C E and it is pronounced as za advised me not advised me Okay, so we should not say he advised me with a C we should say he advised me to start looking for another job and advised here with an s not a C. So that was everything I wanted to share with you in this English Express episode.
