The difference is what they modify: adjectives modify nouns and pronouns while adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Some words can act as either an adjective or an adverb, depending on what they are modifying.
Adjective: A word that describes, identifies or qualifies a noun or pronoun. An adjective usually comes before the noun or the pronoun which it modifies. But it can also follow a linking verb.
Adverb: An adverb is a bit more flexible because it describes or modifies a verb, adjective, or another adverb. Unlike an adjective, an adverb can be found in various places within the sentence. Adverbs are most likely to end in -LY (but not always). An adverb indicates manner, time, place, cause, or degree and answers questions such as "how," "when," "where," "how much".
