You already know I'm immune to you

Patada sí es kick. "A prueba de" es resistente. Por ejemplo, cristal a prueba de balas es lo que ponen para las ventanillas del coche del presidente.

¡Ah entiendo! Muchas gracias pjt y Chili!

@Empanada: I think Shakira's song plays gathering all the possible meanings: to warn, to announce, to inform, etc. The woman's just so tired of the guy.

Me suena marcado. "To give notice" (verbo intransitivo) es un aviso específico: que un empleado avise a su empleador que quiere renunciar (¿verbo adecuado?). Lo que sigue deja claro que no lo usas de esa forma técnica, pero preferiría decir "I notified my students that", "I warned my students that", "I gave my students advance warning that".
Ah gracias. Esa parte nunca supe, ni me dí cuenta, de que se usaba para un aviso específico.

Elaina will become famous soon enough
So, going back to the subject at hand as we seem to be off on a tangent, again.....

Although both words aviso/advertir have similar meanings, I believe that their usage is not the same.

I reiterate that
advertir ....is mostly used to warn someone (verbally) consequences thereafter,
aviso........ is mostly used as an informational word for notice but when it is written, it can be used as an (advertencia) warning.

Although similar, there are subtle differences in their usage.

Por ejemplo....

-Te aviso que voy al baile hoy.
---Te advierto que voy al baile hoy.

-El aviso dice que hay peligro.

-Les aviso que me caso la semana próxima.
---Les advierto que me caso la semana próxima. (almost like a threat)

For this reason I don't believe that their usage is interchangeable.

Of course, like everybody else.

Think about what pjt said: It isn't necessary to understand, just learn and reproduce....

How could you learn, if you do not understand?

I continue having the same doubt.


Warned and notice is the same.

May I use that word with the same meaning?

Warned es un participio pasado (advertido, avisado).
Notice es un sustantivo (un aviso, una notificación), o un verbo algo como percibir.

Warning y notice no se puede intercambiar siempre. Un warning siempre advierte, pero un notice puede informar sin advertir.
