    Location of Quickly

    Hello guys

    Here are two sentences.
    1. Your dress will be quickly changed to swimwear.
    2. Your dress will quickly be changed to swimwear.

    Are they both grammatically correct regardless of the location of the "quickly"?
    Please let me know.

    Neither one is natural.

    Out of context, you could say that.
    One of the sentences is from an authorized school textbook.

    What do you mean by that?

    Authorized by whom? It means little to this native speaker.

    They are grammatically correct, but they don't read very naturally.
