Adverbs of Degree
We use adverbs of degree to describe the degree (extent or amount) of an adjective, adverb or verb.We can use "not" to form a negative with some adverbs of degree.

Adverbs of degree are usually placed:
before the adjective or adverb, they are modifying:
  • The concert was extremely rocking.

before the main verb:
  • He was just leaving the stage.
  • She has almost finished the song.

Enough as an adverb goes after adjectives and adverbs.

Examples
  • Do you think this song is good enough? (adjective)
  • He didn't work hard enough on the concert. (adverb)

It also goes before nouns.
In this case it is not an adverb, but a 'determiner'.

Examples
  • We have enough songs for the album.
  • They don't have enough vibes in their tracks.


Too as an adverb goes before adjectives and adverbs.

  • This guitar is too cool. (adjective)
  • He tries too hard. (adverb)


Enough and too with adjectives can be followed by 'for someone/something'.

  • The dress was big enough for me.
  • She's not experienced enough for this job.
  • The coffee was too hot for me.
  • The dress was too small for her.


We can also use 'too + infinitive' after enough and too with adjectives/adverb.

  • The thinks she's too cool to dance.
  • He didn't work hard enough to win the contest.
  • She's not old enough to go to another country for a tour.
  • You're too young to have grandchildren.


Very goes before an adverb or adjective to make it stronger.
  • The tune was very beautiful. (adjective)
  • He sang very quickly. (adverb)
