Adverbs of Frequency

We use adverbs of frequency to say how often we do things. Adverbs of frequency go before all verbs EXCEPT the verb to be.

De menos a mas:

Never – hardly ever – rarely (seldom) – sometimes – usually (often)- always

Note 1: Remember that with never and hardly ever we use POSITIVE sentences.

– We don’t never smoke. (INCORRECT)
– We never smoke.

Note 2: With don’t and doesn’t we use the adverb of frequency after these and before the verb.
– We don’t usually travel.

Note 3: Sometimes can go at the beginning of the sentence. (Sometimes puede ir al comienzo de una oración)

The adverbs of frequency answer the typical question starting with “How often”.

1) How often do you brush your teeth?
I always brush my teeth

2) How often does your mother cook?
She seldom/rarely cooks.

3) How often is Claudio late for class.
He is never late for class

** How often = Con que frecuencia. Para decir la horas exacta uno tambien puede preguntar (What time?) Para responder la hora exacta utilizamos la preposicion “at” antes de la hora.

What time do you wake up?
I wake up at 7:00 am.
