438 – Very as an Adverb and Adjective

MichaelADGrammar, Vocabulary


Very is an interesting word in English because it can be used as both an adjective and adverb. I think most people are used to using very as an adverb, but as I just mentioned it is also possible to use very as an adjective before a noun. For today’s English lesson, we’re going to look at these two ways of using very.

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details:

  • They had a very big cake at the birthday party.
  • The pizza in this restaurant is very delicious.
  • I think that learning another language is very interesting.
  • Jack drives very quickly on the highway.
