Lesson 3 - Adverbs 3


Hello everybody and welcome to our today’s lesson about Adverbs of Manner

These adverbs explain how something happens. They are usually situated after the verb or the object. We usually add ‘ly’ to an adjective to make an adverb of manner. For example: quick – quickly, absolute - absolutely, slow – slowly, sudden - suddenly
Some adjectives-adverbs are irregular (we don’t add ‘ly’ to make the adverb). For example: good – well, hard – hard, fast – fast, daily - daily

              Do you like the Irish Weather?

The weather in Ireland changes quickly. Sometimes you can precisely identify the four seasons in a single day. You get up in the morning and it’s a nice day but it changes slowly and suddenly you realize it is raining. Sometimes it is hard to live with this weather but on the other hand Ireland is so beautiful and abundantly green because of that.

Do you agree with the story?, We do. Now, find and underline the adverbs of manner. Don’t forget take a look to their position in each sentence as well (review our last lessons about the position of the adverbs, go to the last lesson).



Finally, try to do the next exercises. You will find the correct answers at the bottom of the page. Send us your comments and questions.

Exercise 1. Adverbs of Manner (make the corresponding adverbs with the following adjectives)
Kind - _________ ; normal - _________;soft - __________;angry - ___________

Exercise 2. Chose the right answer for the next sentences
1.       Adverbs of Manner are usually made by adding ‘il’/’ly’/’illy’ to the adjective.
2.       Adverbs of Manner usually go before the subject/after the verb/at the end of the sentence.
