It’s time to take a detailed look at a topic which, on the surface, can seem straightforward, but when you get into it in more detail it can get a bit more complicated. We’re talking about adverbs: words which “describe” a verb, or which give more information as how quickly, effectively, badly etc., you’re doing whatever it is you’re doing! We’ll look at the Italian equivalent of adding “-ly” to an adjective, but we’ll also consider other types of adverbs, and we’ll look at those tricky adverbs like molto. Are you 100% sure when to use molto and when to use molti/molte/molta? By the end of this lesson you’ll be confident with all kinds of Italian adverbs!
