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 convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This unit was a very brief overview of the course. I'm not entirely certain as to why this is a separate testable unit. This is just a general course syllabus with a few definitions of terms. Overall I have not learned anything from this unit except what the course will be going through.It gave me a very clear understanding and better overview of what is all involved and what the course covers. From start to finish. Different jobs and ares you can cover as well as Business English Etiquette and the frameworking involved which makes a lot on sense. Case studies and gamesWas very hard to get a grasp of at first, but once I read over the information provided it was much easier for me to understand. I was able to understand what ZERO conditional, First, Second and third conditional, plus Mixed conditional are and how they are used in the English Language.
