Adverbs of manner in Croatian
What is an adverb of manner?
Adverbs of the manner explain how some action took place. They give an answer to the question; kako? (How?)
There are two ways of formation of adverbs of manner:
1. From the positive, comparation or superlative form of descriptive adjectives: blago, brže, najbrže, teže, najteže.
Dijete se igra veselo. - The child is playing happy. (In what way the child is playing?)
Veselo dijete se igra. - The happy child is playing. (How child is playing?)
The adverbs of manner differ from adjectives in singular of neuter gender. In this form adjectives respond to the question kakvo? (In what way?), and adverbs respond to the question kako? (How?).
2. From the possessive adjective with endings in -ski
Govorimo hrvatski. - We speak Croatian. (How?) - adverb
Naš jezik je hrvatski. - Our language is Croatian. (Which one?) - adjective

I would like to outline my extensive experience, qualifications, and expertise in teaching English, Italian and Croatian (native). I believe I... possess the skills, qualifications and vital experience necessary for the role, but also the passion and dedication to lead students to succeed.I have over 10 years’ experience as an English teacher (including 2 years teaching in China in private training centers and a couple of months of online teaching), working with children aged 3 - 18 in schools and in a kindergarten. I taught also adults and offered private English lessons, too. In addition, I have a degree in English and Italian language and literature and am fluent in both as well as a native Croatian speaker. My previous work involved me traveling internationally, where I worked as an interpreter - in this role I worked under pressure and had to adapt to the culture of the country and I feel confident that I could apply that to this job. In my previous teaching roles, I took a resourceful and creative approach to teaching, organising competitions, field trips, and other activities in the aim of making learning a fun experience, and I believe that this approach was successful in seeing students achieving high results.I am extremely dedicated and reliable, with a strong passion for language. I have excellent interpersonal and communication skills making me a great team-player with the ability to motivate my students. Read more
