  •  Let's have a look at the classification of the adverbs:

    There are  4 groups we divide the adverbs into:

    • location
    • time
    • manner
    • cause

    Adverbs of location

    The questions we ask are: Kde? Kam? (Where? To where?)

    For example: 

    English Slovak
    at home doma
    outside vonku
    far ďaleko
    close blízko
    to the south južne
    up hore
    down dolu
    away preč
    in the middle uprostred

    Here are some example sentences:

    • Pôjdeme ďaleko. (We will go far away.)
    • Už sú blízko. (They are already close.)
    • Západne od nás. (On the south from us.)

     

    Adverbs of time

    The questions we ask are: Kedy? Odkedy? (When? From when?)

    Some examples:

    tomorrow zajtra
    yesterday včera
    long time ago dávno
    never nikdy
    afterwards potom
    still stále
    forever navždy
    until today dodnes

    Here are some example sentences:

    • Urob to teraz. (Do it now.)
    • Necháme to na zajtra. (We will leave it for tomorrow.)
    • Včera bolo pekne. (Yesterday, it was nice.)
