Adverbs are used to describe verbs. They can describe where, how and how often something happens.


Word order with adverbs

In German the word order always stays the same. The adverb comes immediately after the verb.

Sie kann es kaum erwarten. (She can hardly wait.)


Common mistakes made by English speakers:

  • Putting the adverb before the verb (like in English).
  • Getting the time-manner-place adverb order wrong.
