Hi I'm Elise,
I believe I can offer extensive help in Spanish as I have lived in Málaga my whole life. Growing up there has enabled me to develop fluency in the language as I attended Spanish school. I'm bilingual in both English and Spanish and can therefore offer efficient and understandable translated examples that will surely help you on your way to becoming a better Spanish speaker.
Throughout my childhood I was extremely lucky to have amazing tutors who taught me how to "think out of the box" as opposed to just memorising the material. Understanding what you're learning is key to doing well in all assessments and I feel I can aid you in doing so.
Notably, learning is often dull if uninterested in the subject. However, my classes will aim to engage you and focus your attention on the work at hand whilst making it fun- ultimately increasing your enjoyment of the language. Additionally, if you are unable to grasp a concept, I will do my very best to explain things in a variety of ways as everyone learns differently!
So if you're interested, don't forget to book a meet the tutor introductory class with me so we can get started.
An adverb (adverbio in Spanish) is a word that modifies the meaning of verbs, adjectives or other words.
E.g. "The girl smiled nervously"- the word "nervously" describes how she smiled.
There are two ways of forming an adverb:
1) The majority of Spanish adverbs are formed by adding -mente to the (feminine singular form of the adjective) end. Such ending corresponds to -ly in English.
E.g. "Oscar escribió lentamente" (Oscar wrote slowly)
2) The other way to form an adverb is to use the preposition con + the singular form of the noun.
E.g. "Oscar escribió con cuidado"
Note: When an adjective has a written accent (tilde), the adverb retains it. E.g. "Oscar escribió rápidamente" (derives from the adjective "rápido").see more
