  1. Mini lecture sur la grammaireNuméro 4: Les adverbes Présentée parMegan Brown

  2. Adverbes • Adverbs serve the same purpose in French and English: - to modify a verb, adjective, or even another adverb: • “I ate well.” • “J’aibienmangé.”

  3. Types of adverbs • There are 5 types of adverbs: • Time, Manner, Frequency, Place, Quantity • I created this mnemonic device to help you remember them: • That McDonald’s fed people quickly. • (Psst…it even has an adverb in it.)

  4. Examples of the 5 types of adverbs • Time: aujourd’hui, demain, hier • Manner: bien, mal, vite, -ment (we will return to this – it’s an ending, not a word) • Frequency: souvent, parfois(sometimes), rarement, toujours • Place: ici, là, partout, là-bas, quelque part (somewhere) • Quantity: trop, beaucoup, peu, très, assez

  5. Example sentences • Je regardesouvent la télé le soir. (I often watch TV in the evening.) • Nous avonstrèsbienmangé. (We have eaten very well.) • Tu as beaucoup de fleurs! (You have a lot of flowers!) • Aujourd’hui, je fais du ski. (Today, I am going skiing.) • Votrelivre est là-bas. (Your book is over there.)

  6. -ment • Adding –ment to the end of adjectives produces adverbs. • It’s just like adding –ly to the end of English words. • Some adverbs with –ment: • Vraiment, absolument, poliment, lentement, franchement, rapidement • Can you guess the rule?

  7. The rule • If an adjective ends in a vowel, simply add –ment to the end:

  8. The rule • However, if the adjective ends in a consonant, convert the adjective to its feminine form and then add –ment:

  9. Il fautpractiquer • Here are a few adjectives to try converting: • Naturel • Admirable • Premier • Sérieux • Passionné
