The most common word order with these kind of adverbs is after a verb or a verb phrase, e.g. He speaks very quickly, I speak French very well. A typical mistake is: I speak very well French.

Some adverbs like hard, fast, well are irregular and don't add -ly.
BE CAREFUL!!! hardly is another word and means almost not: I hardly slept last night, I hardly ever go to the theatre. Remember that you already learnt hardly ever in unit 3C.
