Native speakers are rarely spoon fed!
first, say an adverb, an adjective and a verb.
an adverb is a word which describes the verb.
adverbs: fast , happily, quickly, dangerously.
e.g: he drives fast. in this sentence, fast describes the verb drives, and if you ask a question, how does he drive?, the answer will be 'fast'
e.g: she speaks loudly. how does she speak? loudly.
loudly describes the action of speaking.
an adjective is a word which describes the noun.
adjectives: beautiful , courageous , skillful.
Sara is a beautiful girl. 'beautiful' describes Sara.
he is a skillful tennis player. skillful describes the pronoun 'he'
pronouns and nouns are just alike. pronouns substitue nouns.

I am not criticising hockeygirl, but criticising our Canadian system of so-called education. It seems that the very basics of grammar have not been taught to this (presumably) young person.
I know that I was appalled when my children were in school that their spelling and grammar were definitely not up to what I thought they should have been.
P.S. fastly is incorrect. He drives fast, then he drives quickly, or faster. Not fastly.
I am not a teacher.
