Adverbials are words that we use to give more information about a verb. They can be one word (angrily, here) or phrases (at home, in a few hours) and often say how, where, when or how often something happens or is done, though they can also have other uses.

Read clear grammar explanations and example sentences to help you understand how adverbials are used. Then, put your grammar knowledge into practice by doing the exercises.

Thanks for the suggestion... Google does not offer the results as a grammatical explanation... Any good online dictionary or similar e-book you may suggest to me?  I would like to review prepositions using phrases... 

Hello Mayela,
Jeremy is suggesting that you use Google to answer your original question (which form is correct?), not to find an explanation. However, you should be able to work out the meaning of the phrase from the words in it (it's not an idiom) and from looking at it in context once you've done the search.

"look at here"vs "look at me"
"keep it coming " vs "keep coming"
and also while in taxi how can i say to driver if i want him to keep driving slowly and stay on the left or near to kerb
could you please clear my doubt ?
 

Hello vnods,
'Look at me' means what it says: that the listener should look at the speaker.
'Look at here' is incorrect.  Perhaps you mean 'look over here', which means 'look at this place' (where the speaker is).
 
'Keep coming' means 'continue moving towards me'.  'Keep it coming' means 'continue giving me (something)'.
 
In the taxi I would probably say something like 'keep to the side and drive slowly'.
 
I hope those answers help you.
Best wishes,

thank you peter

Thank you! It is really help me!

Hi, I want to thank all of you for the efforts you are making to pass on your knowledge. My question is about the order of adjectives and precisely about general and specific opinion adjectives. For examples, nice is general but intelligent is specific. This is confusing specially for learners. Where can we find more to learn about this topic? Thanks

Hello challou!
 
Thanks for your kind words! In answer to your question, we actually have a page on adjective order. We're also expanding our grammar pages, so in the future, this will include more information and exercises.
 
Of course, the real problem for learners is learning to do this without thinking about it. This only comes with time, unfortunately, but doing plenty of reading and listening, so you get used to seeing the right word order, will help.

Hello there, I'd like to ask you a question. I'm a little confused about the place of the adverb "still" in a sentence. Sometimes "still" doesn't stick to the rules as any other adverb. For example "I still don't know" or "I still can't believe" or "I still haven't been to Russia". In these cases "still" is not after the auxiliary or the modal verb like any other adverb. Could you please clarify why it is like this? Can I say "I don't still know" or "I can't still believe" as it should be if I stick to the rules about the place of the adverbs? Thank you!

Hello Emil123!
 
Welcome to LearnEnglish! You're right that still is a bit unusual - but we have a whole page on how to use it! Why not take a look, and see if that helps you?
