"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

Practise or Practice

Hi there,

Should I use Practise or Practice in my sentence below?

By the way, I know that practise is a verb and practice is a noun in British English and Practice is both the noun and verb form In American English.

But, I still don't know which one to use in the below sentence.

You can practise/practice Tennis tomorrow for free.

Thank you.

    @vocamania I think you need to ask yourself two questions:
    1. Is it used as a verb or a noun in your sentence?
    2. Do you want to use British English or American English?
    When you answer those two questions, you will know which one you need to use! ;)

    @vocamania, many thanks for this questions. I wasn't aware that ' to practise' is the verb and practice a noun.

    Practice - noun

    Practise - verb

    Both are correct. practice is a noun whereas practise is a verb
    Ex:- If you want to speak English well, you need to practice- ( it refers to an act)
    She practises the volleyball every day -(do something repeatedly)
