Sentences starting with an adverb

Aim to improve your writing by varying how you begin your sentences. For example, try starting sentences with an adverb.

An adverb gives more information about a verb. It tells you how, when, where and how often something happens. It can go either before or after the verb. Many adverbs end in –ly.
