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.
