In Japanese, adverbs are not conjugated. Nevertheless, it is important students learn them because of the nuances in meaning they can cause. Some of them cannot directly be translated into adverbs in our languages.

This handbook provides students with the basic paradigms of adjectives and adverbs and makes sure students don't just learn them but also use them. The book is divided into two parts. The first part is about adjectives and the second about adverbs. Each of them includes an introduction with basic explanations. The chapter on adjectives is split into two: the -i  conjugations and  -na auxiliary adjectives, and in the second part, common sentence structures with sample adjectives. 

The adverb section is arranged by topics. Among the types of adverbs explained here you will find adverbs to express time, quantity, degree, circumstances, sounds and actions (the omnipresent onomatopoeic adverbs)

Each of the book sections includes an explanations and examples in English. It also includes exercise pages so students can practice what they have learned. There are also appendices with lists for quick searches of words and their meaning.
