I. Intro

At this point we’ve learned a lot of different nouns, adjectives, and verbs - 3 tenses to be exact! ¡Bravo! Today we’re going to take on a 4th group of words: Adverbs. Do you remember what an adverb is? Adverbs tell us how, where, when, why, how much or how often something happens. Let’s get back to the basics and build our way up to understanding these important words.

II. Review: Partes de la oración

Part of Speech

Parte de la oración




Sustantivo (nombre) Persona, lugar, cosa, idea Profesor, universidad, calendario, libertad


Verbo Acción, estado, condición Comunicar, comprender, escribir, ser/estar


Adjetivo Describe un sustantivo Contento, triste, grande, pequeño


Adverbio Describe un verbo, un adjetivo, u otro adverbio Correctamente, muy, bien, mal

To sum up, nouns are people, places, things, and ideas. Verbs describe what nouns do. Adjectives describe the nouns. Adverbs describe the verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs - they talk about how, where, when, or to what extent something happens.

III. Form

1. Manner (How?)

These adverbs tell us how or to what extent something happens. We can also take an adjective and add -mente to form an adverb of manner (just like adding -ly to an adjective in English.)
