You know, in French, there are 2 verbs: “Conseiller” and “recommander” .
In French, the meaning of the 2 verbs is very different.
“Conseiller” means to advise but “recommander” only means to say to sb to pay attention on sth.
I consulted the dictionary French- English and I saw:
Conseiller = Advise.
Recommander = Recommend.
Howerver, in the English dictionary, people say the 2 verbs (advise and recommend)have the same meaning, like this:
They advise that a passport be carried with you at all times.
They recommend that a passport be carried with you at all times.
I recommend he should see a lawyer.
I advise he should see a lawyer.
Are they the same meaning?
