Do you know what is adverb? Explore with our English Teacher, Mr Fredrick and learn more English in Yang Ren Shuo EP 21
Good morning, good afternoon and good evening. This is Fredrick Cabanes the Head English Teacher here at SAA Global Malvern House in Singapore.Today I want to introduce to you a little word that you can find in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese; and in English. It’s called the ‘Adverb’. The adverb is a word that gives more information about the verb, but you can also use the adverb to give more information about an adjective or another adverb.
Now an adverb has two forms, a regular form, and an irregular form. In an irregular form it’s a completely different word. You just have to memorise it. There is no short-cut. But the regular form is pretty easy because most regular adverbs are actually an adjective plus ‘ly’.
Now for some of you, you know that sounds easy. Ah! ‘Easy’! ‘Easy’ is an adjective, if I was going to make it into an adverb, I’d have to follow the ‘Y to I Rule’, so ‘Easy’ becomes ‘Easily’, the ‘Y’ ‘I’ ‘LY’.
The last thing to let you know, is the adverb is always next to, and behind the verb or the adjective or the adverb. Now there are irregular forms, where you can have it in a different position. But I’ll have to tell you about that, next time. Ok? Have yourself a good evening and good night.
