Stuck on adverbs

I've been stuck on adverbs for a while . I recognise I need to practice these but am struggling with motivation due to failing. I wish I could have more smaller chunks of learning when that happens, so that I get some sense of success . It feels like there are two many new words in too many new sentence constructions to assimilate in one go.

Yes, adverbs are tough. I scraped through them in French by writing the sentences down with their translations. I didn't copy and paste because writing with my own hand makes me remember better.

I learned a lot of adverbs later while reading books, so it is not really a big deal if you don't learn them very well on Duolingo. Pass the lessons as you can and move on if adverbs are taking too much of your effort.
