Structure: adverbs of frequency

How to use adverbs of ‘frequency’

Adverbs of frequency tell you approximately how often something happens.

Tip: It’s important to place adverbs in the correct position in a sentence.

Adverbs of frequency can be placed in more than one position in a sentence but we’ll focus on the most natural position for these adverbs in two situations; with normal verbs and with the verb ‘be’.

  • subject + adverb + normal verb + …
    • I usually arrive one hour before my flights.
  • subject + ‘be‘ + adverb + …
    • The flight is seldom late.
