Use adjectives to modify nouns. They usually go before the nouns modified by them. Adjectives may also go after the verb be (is, am, are, was, were). In this case, they act as subject complements.

Adverbs modify verbs. They say something about the time, place, manner or frequency of the action mentioned in the sentence.
