    Working Passionately

    Dear friends and Teachers,

    A. When the manager came into the office, all the employees were working very passionately / very amorously.

    - Is this sentence grammatical?

    Thanks a million!

    Yes, it is grammatical but passionately/amorously are not really appropriate for the situation, why not just "very hard" or "very seriously"?

    The main definitions for passionately and amorously are to do with sexuality and strong emotion.
