I Need Your Advice

Monday, August 20, 2012

Life has its ups and downs and sometimes we run into situations where we need a little help, some advice. How do we ask for advice in English?

1) You can be direct: I need your advice.

2) You can be versatile in your speech and ask for advice in other ways too:

I'm afraid to travel by airplane. What do you suggest?
What do you advise me to do? (verb: to advise, noun: advice)
What should I do?
What's your advice?
If you were me, what would you do?
Can you offer me any suggestions?
What do you recommend?

Since the word advice is uncountable, something we cannot divide or separate, we can use some or any before it:

Can you give me some advice?
Davide didn't have any good advice for me.

People give advice and the receiver takes advice, give and take, and remember that it's always better to give advice when someone asks you for it.
