Пользователи из разных городов пишут нам, что их иногда смущает содержание видеоуроков и произношение преподавателей.

Наша основная задача - помочь ученику быть успешным в школе.

С помощью наших видеоуроков по английскому языку вы сможете подготовиться к завтрашнему уроку в средней (неспециализированной) школе. Чтобы освоить язык для свободного применения в повседневной жизни, рекомендуем обратиться к сайтам Lingualeo.com, Engvid.com, Busuu.com.

Мы знаем, что произношение наших преподавателей часто отличается от произношения носителей языка.

В нашу задачу не входит поставить идеальное английское произношение. К тому же произношение неодинаково, даже у жителей различных районов Великобритании (произношение в Шотландии отличается от произношения в Уэльсе), что уж говорить об Австралии и Индии. Мы уверены, что, если вы научитесь произносить звуки так, как это делают наши учителя, это вам поможет и в школе, и в жизни.

Аффиксация. Суффиксы наречий

На данном уроке мы познакомимся с правилами образования наречий при помощи суффиксов. В ходе занятия мы вспомним основные различия между наречиями и прилагательными, а также рассмотрим частые ошибки при использовании наречий в речи.

Наречия и суффиксы

Adverbs describe adjectives, verbs and other adverbs.

Suffixes are groups of letters attached to the ends of roots. Suffixes serve a grammatical function. They can indicate part of speech to which the word belongs: a noun, a verb, an adjective or an adverb. Suffixes can also modify and extend meaning. 

Ошибки при использовании наречий

You should be very careful while speaking. For example, it will be wrong to say, “I ran to the store quick.” This is not the proper form of the word “quick”. In this sentence, “quick” is modifying the verb “ran”. The word “quick” is an adjective, and “ran” needs to be modified by an adverb. Therefore, the appropriate form of the word to use is “quickly”.

Отличия прилагательных от наречий

Adjectives modify the quality of a noun while adverbs modify how a person performs an activity or an action.

Identify an adverb or an adjective.

1. He is an excellent tennis player. (adjective)

2. He plays tennis excellently. (adverb)

3. He is a graceful athlete. (adjective)

4. He moves gracefully. (adverb)

5. He is a smart player. (adjective)

6. He dresses smartly. (adverb)

As you see, many adverbs are in “ly” and it’s a quick way to turn an adjective into an adverb. For example, “sad” becomes “sadly”, “perfect” becomes “perfectly”.

Changing Adjective Word Forms to Adverb Word Forms (suffixes)


adj. form + ly

-y to -ily

-le to -ly

-ic to -ically

For most words, add -ly to the end of an adjective form to create an adverb word form.

For words with more than one syllable ending in -y, replace the -y with -ily.

For words with more than one syllable ending with -le, replace the -le with -ly.

For words ending in -ic, replace the -ic with -ically.


angry – angrily

busy – busily


academic – academically


one syllable



true – truly

full – fully

whole – wholly

dry – dryly

(one syllable no change)

hole – holey

public – publicly

Наречия, оканчивающиеся на -wise/-ways

- Adverbs of manner ending in -wise/-ways


He turned the dial clockwise. (= in the circular direction that the hands of a clock turn)

She folds the towels lengthwise. (with the fold as the length of the item)

They placed the box on the shelf sideways. (with the side facing you)

Other examples: likewise, otherwise, straight away, anyway, always

- Adverbs of opinion ending in –wise


Weather-wise, it will be a great day for surfing. (with regard to the weather)

The weather is cold and it is windy. Otherwise, it is a great day for surfing. (in other ways)

Pricewise, it is a good deal. (with regard to the price)

Наречия, оканчивающиеся на -fold/-long/-ward

Adverbs ending in suffixes -fold, -ward, -long


fourfold (being four times as great);

homeward, backward, upwards (in a direction turning to);

sidelong (towards).

“Fourno” lamb

Each year, we roast a spring lamb (1) in the traditional way. That is to say, the lamb is prepared (2) in a careful way as it has been for hundreds of years. After we select a side of lamb, we take it home, and prepare the “fourno”, a stone oven. First, my father builds a fire (3) in a skillful way with dried wood from old fruit trees. It takes a while for the wood and the oven to get hot. (4) In a happy way he sits outside, “feeds” the oven, and talks to my uncle. He checks the burning wood frequently to see if it is turning a light gray colour. Meanwhile, we prepare the lamb. First, we wash it with water and lemon and pat it dry (5) in a thorough manner. Then, we slice garlic (6) in a fine way and insert in a gentle way under the skin of a lamb. We sprinkle the lamb (7) in a light manner with salt, pepper and oregano and place it in a large pan. If needed, we tie the lamb (8) in a secure way so that it won’t fall apart. Then, we place the pan in the oven (9) with the side facing out. As the lamb cooks, he adds twigs of rosemary thyme, sage and oregano into the flames (10) in a quick manner. The wonderful smell of the roasting lamb and the smoky herbs causes us to wait (11) in an impatient manner. In the last half hour of cooking, we arrange cut potatoes (12) in a neat manner around the lamb in the pan. When the lamb is ready, we take our places at the table and await our first bite (13) in an eager manner. We sit together as a family and eat (14) in a joyful manner.
