Worksheet Overview

An adverb is a word that gives more detail about an action.

Jake played the piano well.

I often go to the cinema.


If the adverb consists of more than one word it is called an adverbial phrase.

Mum hid my present in the garage.


Adverbs and adverbial phrases can be put into different groups depending on the type of information they add to the action.


Adverbs of manner answer the question 'How?'

He knocked loudly.

She walked slowly.

(This is the type of adverb you probably learnt about when you were younger. Many adverbs of manner end in -ly, although not all of them do.)


Adverbs of time answer the question 'When?'

My dad is coming home tomorrow.

She caught the train early yesterday morning.


Adverbs of place answer the question 'Where?'

Jamie lives in London.

Kayla is working outside.


Adverbs of frequency answer the question 'How often?'

I go to ballet lessons every week.

I never eat chocolate.
