And don't forget, at the end of this video, there was a full summary slide with all the information on it. So sit back, relax and enjoy. So advice with a C is an uncountable. Now, that's a D v I. C e. And notice the s sound advice. It means an opinion recommendation or suggestion by someone that you should do something in a certain situation. It's commonly followed by the propositions about or on. For example, you need my advice about advice. See what I did. Advice strongly colic eights with the verbs. Give and take. You can give advice or you can take someone's advice for example, my friend gave me some relationship advice, but I thought it was bad, so I didn't take it. You could do something on someone's advice. For example, on my father's advice, I became a teacher, but I really wanted to be a lion tamer. It can be followed by an infinitive, for example. John, look out with that lion. My advice is to call the doctor first thing in the morning and, of course, as an uncountable. Now we can make it countable by using a piece, a piece off advice. I have three pieces of advice for you. Brush floss and use mouthwash every day. Okay, this is a good time for me to remind you about the learner's questions.

It basically means give advice. In other words, give someone your opinion suggestion or recommendation as to what they should do in a certain situation. It's propositions are on or about. So now I'll advise you on advise, huh? Second time I did it again. You can advise something. For example, when working with lions, I advise fear, lots of fear. You can advise someone to do something. For example, my father advised me to choose a different career. You can advise someone against doing something. For example, in the cage, I advised against making any sudden movement. Finally, you can advise that, for example, circus masters everywhere advised that people stop disturbing lions. They recommend trying gorillas instead. Thank you very much for your question, Sean.
