Adverbs

In addition to adjectives, adverbs are very essential. This includes adverbs of time ", frequency, manner and place. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some key words such as "yesterday", "always", "quickly", "here" etc. Adverbs can modify adjectives and verbs.

Below is a list of 30 adverbs that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Tamil, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
