TO ADVISE: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a nice weekend, a long weekend for some of you.

The meaning of the English verb advise has nothing to do with the similar looking Spanish/Catalan word avisar.

Advise means: to give your opinion about the best thing to do in a certain situation.

Example 1
My broker advised me to buy shares in a mutual fund.

Example 2
Nancy's docter advised her to stop smoking.

Example 3
Matthew advised me to stay in contact with English in the summer.

This verb, then, is the equivalent of "aconsejar" in Spanish ("consellar" in Catalan). It does not mean "avisar." Do you know how to say "avisar" in English? The answer is after my Signature.

If you have questions about today's verb, I advise you to contact me.

Have a great day!
