    Hard or Hardly


    The adjective and adverb forms of  hard are the same . Pay attention please:

    1) This man is a hard worker.

    2) He works so hard in this factory.

    In the first sentence  hard explains  a noun, man, so it is an adjective. But in the second sentence  hard explains  a verb ( work) , so it is an adverb of manner. 

    Hardly is different from hard, hardly is a frequency adverb ( like: always, usually, sometimes....) and it comes before the main verb and after modals or be ( am, is, are, was, ....).

    Hardly means: almost never. 

    Now, you are ready for this test!
