LI: To know what a fronted adverbial is

Think about what an adverb is - a word that describes a verb eg slowly. Now think about an adverbial - a phrase or clause ( a group of words) - which tell you more about a verb eg He ran under the trees. The bell rang at 5 o'clock. A fronted adverbial means that the adverbial is at the beginning of the sentence eg After school, the children went to the park. Remember to put a comma after a fronted adverbial.
