Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this activity, you will practice how to use adverbials correctly.

 

Adverbials are useful words or phrases that can describe the action in a sentence. 

Just like an adverb, an adverbial adds further detail or information to a verb.

An adverbial can be used at the beginning or end of a sentence.

When it is used at the beginning of a sentence, it is called a 'fronted adverbial'.

 

Example 1

'She jumped around, all day long.' (Here the adverbial is at the end of the sentence).

'All day long, she jumped around.' (Now the adverbial is at the beginning of the sentence and is called a fronted adverbial).

 

Example 2

'We met by the bus station.' (Adverbial at the end of the sentence).

'By the bus station, we met.' (Now the adverbial is at the beginning of the sentence and is called a fronted adverbial).
