Slide 7 - Tekstslide

-ly
Most adverbs are formed by adding -ly after the adjective.
Beautiful - beautifully

Remember! Sometimes the spelling of the adverb changes. 
Terrible - terribly
Easy - easily
Fantastic - fantastically

Slide 8 - Tekstslide

Irregular  adverbs
There are also irregular adverbs. The adverb for good is  well - She's a good performer. She performs well. 

A few adverbs have the same form as the adjective.
Fast (snel), fair (sportief/eerlijk), low, high, hard, long, late, loud  and straight (onmiddelijk) - He's a fast driver, He drives fast






Slide 9 - Tekstslide

Pay attention!
If you use a 'verb of the senses' (een zingtuiglijk werkwoord, waarmee je iets doet met je zintuigen), you use an adjective where you should normally use an adverb. 
Your senses are your eyes, nose, mouth, fingers and ears, so 'verbs of the senses' are: see, smell, taste, feel, hear
For example: 
The song sounds beautiful. (not beautifully). 
The softness of your jacket feels good. (not well)
