    No, the teacher is right - practise is the verb (she will be revising her words so therefore is practising them). Practice is generally a noun (like spelling practice). HTH!

    A new policy came out at work today from our global head office based overseas. At least 2 senior directors reviewed it, yet there are at least 5 mentions of "do'nt" in the policy. Seriously?!

    Oh boy that's a worry. Do these people not have eyes?!? It's like reading our local newspaper.. I like to drive DH nuts by proofreading it. Someone's gotta do it as obviously they don't bother!!!
