THE WAY WE ARE
In Unit 1, you learn how to……
• Use manner and adjectives to talk about people’s
behaviour and personality
• Use adverbs like extremely to make adjectives and
• Add prefixes to adjective to make opposites
• Use always with a continous verb to decribe individual
• Use at least to point out the positive side of a situation.
Manner adverbs vs adjectives
Structure verb + manner adverb

Regular adverbs (Add ly)
In conversation the most common-ly manner adverbs are
quickly, easily, differently, automatically, slowly,
properly, badly, strongly, and carefully.
