Temporal Adverbs


I. Theory

Temporal adverbs are used to show the time at which an action has taken place, is taking place, or will take place. Examples of English temporal adverbs are: “now,” “immediately,” and “then.”

Jetzt können wir anfangen.
Now, we can begin.

Wir hatten damals kein Auto.
We didn’t have a car back then.

Ich rufe dich später an.
I will call you later.

II. Temporal Adverbs

This lesson will focus on four commonly used temporal adverbs (jetzt, damals, später, and dann). As temporal adverbs convey the time in which an action is completed, they often are found either at the beginning of the German sentence or before manner and place information.
