ADVERBS - Exercises with keys for ESL students



We use adjectives to describe people or things: I'm a slow reader.
We use adverbs to describe how someone or something does something: I read slowly.

To make an adverb, we usually add -ly at the end of an adjective. Be careful of spelling changes: slow → slowly, angry → angrily.

This adverb is irregular: good → well.

These words can be both adjectives and adverbs. They do not change: fast → fast, hard → hard.

1. Re-write the sentences. Use adverbs.

a) He's a beautiful singer. 
b) She's a bad player.
