Sentences with adverbs of frequency in English

In the English language, as well as in the Italian one, some adverbs are used to describe the frequency with which we carry out an activity. These are called frequency adverbs and the most used are: always (always), usually (usually), often (frequently), sometimes (sometimes), occasionally (occasionally), hardly ever (almost never), rarely (rarely), never(never). They must be positioned between the subject and the main verb, but if the auxiliary is present, they must be positioned immediately after it. Furthermore, some adverbs of frequency can be used at the beginning of a sentence. There are also others and to learn more about the subject we advise you to go and read the English grammar note regarding adverbs of frequency in English .
