boutons042.gifThings to remember about asking for and giving advice:
1. "Advise" is a verb.

webmaster-mini-puces-00022.gifExample:

"I advise you to learn English. You will undoubtedly need it in your higher studies"

2. "Advice" is a noun.

webmaster-mini-puces-00022.gifExample:

"My father gave me this piece of advice when I was young: never give up"

3. "Ought to" has nearly the same meaning as "should". The only difference is that "ought to " refers to a moral or external obligation but "should" is more of an advice.

webmaster-mini-puces-00022.gifExample:
"You ought to stop smoking."

"You should stop smoking."

4. "You'd better" is the short form of "you had better"

webmaster-mini-puces-00022.gifExample:

"You'd better see a doctor!" = "You had better see the doctor"
