English Grammar Overview - Parts of Speech - Adverbs

 

Now, let's move on to our adverbs. Rather than describing nouns, our adverbs describe our verbs. There are four types of adverbs when describing verbs. They are manner. These describe how things are done. Two examples are: quickly, cleverly. We have adverbs of place, describing where the action happened. Two examples are: here or there. We also have adverbs of time, describing when the action happened, two examples being now or recently. Finally, we have our adverbs of frequency telling us how often the action happens, two examples being often or never. There's also another type of adverb but here, we're going to describe adjectives or other adverbs instead of verbs themselves. These are called adverbs of degree. If we were to take the adjective "intelligent", we could easily say "He's very intelligent," "She's really intelligent," "They're quite intelligent," or "he's extremely intelligent." Now, for other adverbs, we could use the adverb "quickly": "He ran very quickly," "She ran really quickly," "They ran quite quickly," or "He ran extremely quickly."


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.

This unit provided information on different techniques and methods of teaching language. The Engage Study Activate methodology was introduced and reasoning was provided for the success of this methodology. Additionally there was focus on activities to incorporate into teaching that produce results,maintain interest, and provide some fun for the learners.I have learnt so much more from this unit i got to learnt that a Teacher do not have to be an extrovert to be good Teacher in the classroom,some good Teacher are very low key while other Teachers are both lively and amusing sometimes they are regarded as nothing more than an entertainer ,The Teacher should also be able to inpire confident in the students.
