English lesson 3:

How to use adverbs and adjectives:

Adverbs

- words that describe a verb
Adjective - words that describe nouns

Adjectives:

You can either put the adjective before or after the noun.
Before = the (adjective) (noun)

Example1 = the handsome boy
Adjective noun

Example 2 = the pretty girl
A. N

After the noun = the (noun) was/is (adjective)

Example 1 = The boy was tall
Noun Adjective

Example 2 = the mirror is shiny
Noun Adjective

How to know whether to use “is” or “was”.
If you are talking about a quality that used to be true but is no longer true you should use “was”
If you are talking about a quality that is still true you should use “is”

If you use the wrong one or get mixed up it’s not that big of a deal.


Adverbs

Adverbs describe how an action is being done.
Most adverbs end with -ly
Examples: quietly,slowly,quickly,carefully

But there are some exceptions (we will go through the exceptions and they’re rules in another lesson)

Again you can use adverbs before or after verbs.

Before verbs = subject adverb verb

Example 1 = They slowly walked
S adverb verb

Example 2 = She quickly ate
S adverb verb

After the verb = subject verb adverb

Example 1 = I talked quietly
S verb adverb

Example 2 = He carefully carried the baby
S adverb verb Object

You can add an object after the verb in both cases, whether the adverb comes before or after the verb.

Hope this helped :)

Next lesson will be on writing and speaking
