November is usually a grey month here in Zurich but on Sunday the sun was shining so I decided to get my bike out of the cellar and do one of my usual bike rides around the Greifensee.


It’s 45km in total from my house, around the lake and back again. The loop around the lake is lovely and flat but to get there I have to go over and around a big hill (half over/ half around). Yesterday I was tired and hadn’t been on my bike in a while so I decided to cycle slowly to Greifensee and back, skipping the extra 15km loop around the full lake.


As I mentioned earlier, it was a sunny November day in Zurich when I set off. However, as I cycled closer to Greifensee, the sun disappeared behind low cloud. This was slightly disappointing as I had wanted to boost my vitamin D but on a positive note, the lake looked absolutely beautiful and I managed to get some gorgeous photos. After taking a couple of snaps, I turned around and headed home. Luckily, I made it back before it started to go dark.


Language Tips

This time, we’ll look at adverbs. Here are a few things you should know about adverbs.

  • Many adverbs end in ‘ly but that doesn’t mean that all words ending in ‘ly are adverbs.

  • We use adverbs in lots of different ways, for example, to describe verbs, to modify adjectives and to talk about frequency.

  • Sometimes adverbs are at the start of a sentence, sometimes at the end and sometimes in the middle!

  • Remember to add adverbs to your writing in the Cambridge exams, they can make the writing more interesting and informative

How many #adverbs can you spot in today’s post? I counted seven but maybe you can find more?
