Erros comuns

Escolha a opção correta
She rubbed her eyes hardly.
She rubbed her eyes hard.

Hard means severely. Hardly means not quite or scarcely: The baby can hardly walk.

Next
Zoe rarely comes to see me now
Zoe scarcely comes to see me now.

Scarcely isn't synonymous with rarely. Rarely means not often, scarcely means not quite: I had scarcely finished when he came.

Next
She likes the cinema too much.
She likes the cinema very much.

Use very much instead of much for greater emphasis. Too much denotes an excessive quantity or degree: She ate too much, and felt ill. 

Next
I hear that he's not very rich.
I hear that he's not so rich.

We can't use not so in the sense of not very. The expression He's not so rich implies a comparison: He's not so rich as you are.

Next
It's too hot in Rome in the summer.
It's very hot in Rome in the summer.
It's now very hot to play football.
It's now too hot to play football.

Very simply makes the adjective or adverb stronger. Too means more than enough, or so much that something else happens as a result.
