    How often?

    Adverb :

    a-with most verbs , we put the adverb before the mine verb .

    We never go out at lunchtime .

    b-with the verb b , we put the adverb after the verb .
    he is always late for class .

    Ok this is one lesson in my book it's grammar as you see .
    but I can't unnderstand it .
    especially here
    he is always late for class .
    the rule says we have to add adverb after the verb
    so why it became like this ?

    Before the main verb
    1. We never go out at lunchtime .
    2. We always go out at lunchtime.

    After the main verb
    1. He is always late for class. <the verb to be>
    2. He is never late for class. <the verb to be>


    Does that help?

    skateboarding = riding and doing tricks on a skateboard, which is a board with skate wheels on it [see here: http://tinyurl.com/2o9hsm].

    Skiing is moving over snow on long boards, one for each foot [see here: http://tinyurl.com/2j6pa8]

    You go to the gym and go on a run, but you can also say I go to a gym and am going to go on the run. It will depend on the context and related questions.
