Adverbs Part 1: Modifying verbs

Learning new grammar topics can be very tricky. Fortunately, you have our blogs to help you along the way! In this blog, we are going to talk about adverbs and how to use them.

What are adverbs? Chances are you have already used them! In this blog we will talk about the first way we can use them is to describe verbs, which is what we will learn about today.

Adverbs can often modify verbs – which means that they describe the way an action is happening. Let’s see some examples.

John dances gracefully when he sings.
My doctor spoke to me seriously yesterday.
I arrived early to my meeting today.

In these examples, we can see that the adverb asks: in what way:

How does John sing? He sings gracefully!
How did my doctor speak? He spoke seriously!
Did I arrive on time? No, I arrived early!
Let’s test your knowledge with a little quiz on adverbs!

Prepositions of Place (with Bailey the Beagle)

Sometimes we lose our keys, our wallet, and even our cellphone!
It is very frustrating when we don’t know where things are or where they go. It is even worse when we don’t know how to say where things are and where they go!
On, under, over, above, into, between, behind, below, near, next to… and the list goes on!

There are so many ways to describe the position of things! How can we possibly remember them all?
But, have no fear, Scrambled Eggs is here with some common prepositions of place.

So next time you need to find that lost item, you can simply ask yourself (in English, of course) “Did I leave it on the kitchen counter?” or “Did it fall under the table?” maybe it even went behind the couch!

Our sweet Bailey Beagle will guide us through some of the more difficult prepositions of place. Hopefully her cuteness will help us to remember when to use those pesky prepositions!
