Hello everyone, I would be grateful if someone can help me...Emotion: sad

Q:
You will move to a new city for work. You know some people who live there.

* Ask them for help finding accommodation
* Tell them where you would like to live
* Tell them the type of place you are looking for

A:
Dear Mary,

How are you? I haven't seen you so long. What have you been up to? I will move to your hometown next month since I got a new job there. Perhaps we can have a drink and chat on every Friday just like the old times.

By the way, I intend to rent a apartment in your home town for my accommodation. Can you give some advise to me? I hope the apartment is not too far away from downtown, if the location is near police station will be perfect. I remember you told me that the public security in your hometown is bad. Regarding the size of the apartment, I think 500 to 600 feet is quite suitable and affordable for me.

Thank you so much for your help. I hope we can see each other soon.

Sincerely
Assman

Thank you so much!

Could someone pls tell me the different of:
1)Can you give some advise to me?
2)Can you advise me?

and why 1) was wrong?
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
(1) is wrong because "advise" (verb) should be a "advice" (noun).

Also, "give some advice", though correct, is better replaced by a shorter word of just "advise".
