Practice is the act of rehearsing a behaviour over and over, or engaging in an activity again and again, for the purpose of improving or mastering it, as in the phrase 'practice makes perfect'. It is important to note that practise is a verb and should not be confused with the noun practice. Sports teams practise to prepare for actual games. Playing a musical instrument well takes much practice. It is a method of learning and of acquiring experience. The word derives from the Greek "πρακτική" (praktike), feminine of "πρακτικός" (praktikos), "fit for or concerned with action, practical", In English, practice is the noun and practise is the verb, but in American-English it is now common for practice to be used both as a noun and a verb (see American and British English spelling differences; this article follows the British distinction).
