Practice vs Practise – What’s the difference?

Practice is a noun, it can be a place or time such as a doctors practice, or piano practice.

Practise is a verb, it is something you do. For example, the doctor practises medicine in a doctors practice and the boy practises his piano at piano practice.

This is a common occurance between similiar words, where the one ending with ce is a noun and the one ending with se is a verb…..see the last post concerning advice/advise.
