Adverbs of frequency are usually in this form for sentences: Subject + Adverb + Verb.

3 Adverb Quiz: Convert Adjectives to Adverbs

This adverb quiz tests student’s ability to convert adjectives to adverbs. For example, you can take the adjective “calm” and make it an adverb by adding “-ly”.

In an adverb sentence, you have to add a verb for which the adverb describes. For example, “the coach spoke calmly to the players”.

Because not all adverbs end with “-ly”, there are several exceptions in the English language. For example, “well”, “fast” and “hard” are adverbs without ending with “-ly”.
