Agreeing and disagreeing
Ahmed: I think English is an interesting language to learn
instead of French. What do you think?
Amina: I'm afraid I disagree. In comparison to French,
English is not valued in Morocco.
Ahmed: I have to side with you on this one. In Morocco,
French is given more importance than English but I
personally find English a very interesting language.
Amina: Yeah, there is no doubt about that!

Asking for and giving advice
• Advice vs Advise
• Advice is a noun meaning a suggestion or
recommendation. It is an opinion about what
could or should be done in a situation or about a
problem.
Example: My father gave me this piece of advice when I was
young: never give up.
• Advise is a verb meaning to give advice.
Example: I advise you to learn English. You will undoubtedly
need it in your higher studies.
Asking for and giving advice

do something about it. What do you advise me to do?
• Teacher: I think you should try this website. It's a
fantastic website for beginners.
• Student: I've heard about it, but what do you think I
should start with?
• Teacher: You'd better start with the lessons. Then, try
the exercises.

• Me: Then, I don't know what to advise, I'm afraid.
• Brother: ok! Thanks anyway.
