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
In the following table there is a list of adverbs with the sentence example.
|tako||Tako ja to radim.||I do it like that.|
|ovako||Ovako više ne može.||We cant continue this way.|
|neprimjetno||Uvijek dođe neprimjetno.||He always come imperceptible.|
|loše||Loše se osječam.||I feel bad.|
|nikako||Ne mogu ga nikako pronaći.||There is no way to find it.|
|svakako||Svakako se savjetuj s njima.||Be sure to consult it with them.|
|slučajno||Sučajno sam je zaboravila.||I forgot it accidentally.|
|brzo||Brzo je došla.||She came quickly.|
|dobro||Ne osječam se dobro.||I dont feel good.|

Me as a Teacher I am a Serbian native speaker and a language teacher. I have been teaching online for 5 years. I live in Belgrade. I've been... teaching online for 5 years (officially). I love teaching because it's a dynamic and an interesting job. You can teach your students and you can learn from them as well. The happiness and joy of the student + their progresses with their target language = my biggest prize (so my students are the ones who motivate me to work better)and I try to combine: a bit of reading, a bit of writing, a bit of conversation, a bit of grammar and a bit of listening by using different resources. About Me My favorite topics are: 1. Travelling , 2. Foreign languages, 3. TV programs, 4. Films and TV series, 5. Culture, 6. sport, 7. IT, 8. Science My hobbies are: learning foreign languages, horse- riding, reading, travelling, ... I am open-minded, flexible and very positive. If you come up with something interesting to talk about, please, don't hesitate to suggest me and I'll gladly discuss with you about that. I visited: Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia and Slovenia. My Lessons & Teaching Style Firstly, I test the level of the target language... I have two parts: 1) Conversational part (here I check their vocabulary and their fluency + I find out their language goals and their needs) 2) Writing part (with that I focus much more on grammar and spelling) For each part, I take notes (I have my notebook for that). Secondly, I personalize my lessons to their goals and needs. I can cover a lot of topics: business, travelling, culture, etc. My Teaching Material Text Documents Audio Recordings Images and Visuals Video News Articles and Magazines Quizzes Example Test Templates Graphs and Charts Homework Assignments PowerPoint Presentations Read more
Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured according to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
