Review and Revise
Review and revise often get us confused because of its almost similar definition. For ESL learners, learning new English words is a challenging task, especially when words almost have the same meaning. The nature of the English language is really interesting because some words can sound and mean the same, however, they are not if we learn them deeper. The grammatical use of review and revise is easy provided that these two words are verbs. Both are action words that mean ‘look again at something you have studied to prepare for a test or an exam’. We use the word revise in Standard British English (SBE) whereas review in General American English (GAE).
I think I’ll fail in the spelling test because I forgot to review all the rules.
