Confusing Words: Affect or Effect

Time and time again I see these words causing problems in the classroom and they are so important for the IELTS exam particularly in the writing 1 part.

I have written an indepth article about the different uses of effect and affect here at this link:

Affect or effect (link)

If you don't have time to read it I will quickly write the differences here as well... but the article goes far deeper into the two words

Affect is the verb, to affect - the way something is influenced or changed while effect is the noun, or the result of the way something has been affected. I recommend reading further into it in the article and as ever, it is free :)

I hope you find the article useful and please write in the comments section any other words you find confusing and I will write explanations for them. 

Many thanks
