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.

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