Adverbs are words that qualify verbs, adjectives or other adverbs,
e.g. He ate quickly; She is quite tall; She is amazingly happy
Most adverbs in English are formed by adding -ly to an adjective. In Spanish, you add -mente to the feminine form of the adjective,
e.g. rápido - quick > rápidamente - quickly; fácil - easy > fácilmente - easily
When you have two adverbs ending in -mente together in a sentence, remove the -mente from the first adverb,
e.g. Lo hizo rápida y fácilmente - He did it quickly and easily.
Here are a list of common adverbs which don't end in -mente. You just have to learn them as items of vocabulary!
