Johnny has to do his piano practice. Johnny has to practise the piano. Please practise your handwriting.You must do some handwriting practice.The doctor has his practice on Abbey Road.
apologies - yes US is "practice" but "license" for both noun and verb, just to be confusingand also "defines", "pretense" and others
I too thought the US only used 'practice.'
All the US books I've read use 'practice' for both noun and verb.
I remember it like this- You have to practiSe your SpellingsAndA doCtor has a mediCal practiCe
in the US both are "practise", as with "license"
I suppose it would be easier to remember if there was a difference in pronunciation, as in advice/ advise.
Except in the US, where the distinction is nearly obsolete. (Both are spelled "practice.")
You can also remember that 'ice' is a noun and so is 'practice'. Works for me!
Practise - verbPractice - nounIt is like advise (verb) and advice (noun)
