'Practice' or 'Practise'?

(Last Updated: 26 February 2022)

Practice is a noun, and practise is a verb:

✅ I did my violin practice.

✅ I practised the violin.

Note that in American English, practice is used for the verb and the noun.

Examples from the media

It's best practice to have one chopping board and knife for meat and fish and another for everything else. —BBC

There is no longer any doubt that everyone needs to practise—there is no such thing, at least among the virtuoso athletes and musicians that Ericsson has studied, as a prodigy who simply didn't put in the hours and yet attained world-beating performance. —The Guardian
