How we make adverbials

An adverbial can be an adverb:

He spoke angrily.
They live here.
We will be back soon.

or an adverb with a quantifier:

He spoke really angrily.
They live just here.
We will go quite soon.
We will go as soon as possible.

or a phrase with a preposition:

He spoke in an angry voice.
They live in London.
We will go in a few minutes.

Is there any way to track the exircises done?
Accumulating points or something like that.
Why this exercise say that I can get 2 points doing it? How can I get it?
thanks! bye

I don't understand way quite, just and really are considered quantifiers. I was reading the lesson about quantifiers and I didn't saw anything like this. As far as I know , a quantifier is used to give an information about the number of something.
thank you

Hello viodel!
One of our other learners, Adoh, wrote a good reply to you above. There is a mistake on the page, though, and it should really say intensifiers, not quantifiers.
Hope that helps!

I got 5 out of 6:)

When I will use past simple and past perfect

the first thing police did were was to retrieve the cctv footage from the parking place. Is it a correct sentences?

Hi dipankar!

It's nearly correct, but you have to decide between was and were (be verb forms). 'First thing' is singular, so you need was. We have pages about the grammar of be as well as information about plural and singular - check them out for more!

Can we say(they just live here)??and whats the difference between this sentence and the *they live just here*.
With my regards

so many thanks to learn English team
