If you mentioned the word too many native English speakers, you might get this kind of reaction. Do not fear adverbs are not as scary as some might think. For today's lesson, we will talk about just one use of adverbs to modify verbs. When adverbs are modifying verbs, they often answer how question? What is a how question? Here's an example. Recently I was visiting a new city. I asked a man for directions. When he spoke, His words came too quickly for me to understand. I said, Wow, he speaks quickly in the sentence. He speaks quickly. Speak is the verb, and quickly is the adverb. Quickly describe. Speak, in other words, quickly answers the how question. How does this person speak? He speaks quickly. Let's take another example. Imagine you are watching a turtle move. How does the turtle move slowly so you could say the turtle moves slowly. There are many other uses of adverbs, but for today, just remember that adverbs often have an L. Y ending and Lawson modify a verb.
