Adverbs & Adverbials

There are things some students need to review at home, when they are below the upper intermediate level, and you all have textbooks and materials, I’m sure. But anyway, I’ll share with you here some of my notes:

LOMs

  • You cannot say “DO SOMETHING very good/bad” (adjective) but “DO sth very WELL/BADLY” (adverbs): e.g. He cleans very well.
  • You can say “I feel GOOD/BAD” and “I am GOOD/BAD at this or that” (adjective)

From Functional Grammar at TP, but there’s more in the C1 Resource Pack

Adverb order: How-where-when

Adjective or adverb

A worksheet we could read in class, if you like, is this:

Theory: Adverbs and adverbials (2 pages) – You can do this as follow-up: Practice with adverbials (2 pages, with key)

My post where you can spot the adverbs or the adverbials was this: Teacher’s UL on documentary

Feel free to post your questions, and remember: use your listening work to practice reviewing grammar, visualize the grammar as you listen!
