French adjectives are formed by adding the ending -ment in the female version of the adjective. For example habituelle-->habituellement. When the adjective (in its male form) ends in a vowel, then the -e of the feminin form disappears. For example poli-->poliment (and not poliement). Adjectives ending in -ent become -emment in adverb and ajectives ending in -ant become -amment in adverb. For example courant-->couramment, différent-->différemment. Also, there are some irregular adverbs, like gentil-->gentiment, bon-->bien, mauvais-->mal, meilleur-->mieux, bref-->brièvement, etc. I hope I've helped you! :)
