                An adverb is a word that changes or simplifies the meaning of a verbadjective, other adverb, clause, or sentence.Adverbs typically answer questions such as how?, in what way?, when?, where?, and to what extent?. This function is called the adverbial function, and is realised not just by single words (i.e., adverbs) but by adverbial phrases and adverbial clauses.
Adverb of Time
                Adverbs of time tell us when an action happened, but also for how long, and how often.
   Ø  When                   : today, yesterday, later, now, last year
   Ø  For how long    : all day, not long, for a while, since last year
   Ø  How often          : sometimes, frequently, never, often, yearly
Example :
          1. Goldilocks went to the Bears' house yesterday.
          2. I'm going to tidy my room tomorrow.
          3. I, together with my pals, already have eaten lunch. 
          4. She’ll prepare for the final test from now to the next saturday.
          5. I paid a call my friend in the hospital last week.
Adverb of Place
                Adverbs of place indicate where something happens.
Thes  include; abroad, anywhere, here, outside, somewhere, there, underground, upstairs etc.

        3. The ceremony was being held outdoors.
        4. Chris is going to work overseas.
        5. The road twists uphill.
Adverb of Manner
Some adverbs tell us how an action is or should be performed.
   Ø  Often these adverbs are formed by adding -ly to the end of an adjective.
   Ø  Adjectives ending -l add -ly ; careful-carefully.
   Ø  Adjectives ending -y change to -ily ; lucky-luckily
   Ø  Adjectives ending -ble change to -bly ; responsible-responsibly
Example :           
        1. The little girl ran quickly. In this sentence quickly modifies the verb ran (to run).
        2. The rich woman learned from experts how to arrange flowers beautifully.

        4.Please read the instructions carefully before you filling the form.
        5. He wanted to know the difference between working hard and working smart.
Adverb of Frequency
                Adverbs of frequency tell us how often something is done.
Adverbs of frequency include; always, constantly, continually, frequently, infrequently, intermittently, normally, occasionally, often, periodically, rarely, regularly, seldom, sometimes etc.
Example :
            1. always do my homework on time. - In this sentence always shows us the frequency (how often) I do my homework on time.
            2. She goes out occasionally. - In this sentence occasionally shows us the frequency (how often) she goes out.
