Adverbial clause

5
Average: 5 (2 votes)

An adverbial clause tells us more about a main clause, in the same way as an adverb tells us more about a verb.

Example
He went there because he wanted revenge.

In the classroom
The conjunctions that link adverbial clauses and other parts of the sentence are often a focus of work in this area. Learners can practise these by linking parts of sentences using the correct conjunctions, or by finishing sentence starters appropriately.
