Lesson 188: Changing adjectives into adverbs


Where adjectives are used to modify nouns, adverbs are used to modify verbs.

We can turn an い-adjective into an adverb by replacing the -い ending with -く.

This bus is fast.この バス は はやい。
kono basu ha hayai.
Can (I) return home early today?きょ いえ  はやく かえれる か?
kyou ie ni hayaku kaereru ka?

We can turn な-adjectives into adverbs by replacing the -な ending with -に.

Your girlfriend sings beautifully.あなた の かのじょ は きれいに うたう。
anata no kanozyo ha kireini utau.
