English Monday #1 Advise Vs. Advice

ADVISE VS ADVICE

Halo sahabat PPIA UniSA. Selamat datang bagi mahasiswa Unisa yang baru mulai

kuliah. Kali ini, kita akan membahas beberapa kata yang sering tertukar.

Pasangan kata yang pertama adalah “advise” dan “advice”. Sebelum kita kuliah

ke luar negeri, biasanya kita menemui “student advisor” untuk meminta “advice”.

Yuk kita cermati perbedaannya.

ADVISE (verb/ kata kerja)

Arti: to offer suggestions about the best course of action to someone (Oxford

Dictionary)

Advise artinya menyarankan (seseorang) mengenai hal yang sebaiknya

dilakukan. Orang yang memberikan saran disebut “advisor” (lebih formal) atau

juga disebut “adviser” (lebih kasual).

Contoh:

– Ms. Rara advised me to contact my supervisor in University of South

Australia.

– My mother often advise something against plan.

– Can you advise a better accommodation plan ?

ADVICE (noun / kata benda)

Arti: Guidance or recommendations offered with regard to prudent action (Oxford

Dictionary)

Advice artinya saran, hal yang disarankan.

Contoh:

– His advice is to come a week before the orientation day.

– I always take advice from my brother, he knows me so well.

Nah, sobat PPIA Unisa, jangan tertukar lagi ya. We’ll see you again next week.

how-are-you
