    How would I use Adroit in this sentence in the place of the word underlined?
    My cat would climb up the trees skillfully.

    Skillfully is an adverb. Adroit is an adjective. Now what can you do?

    Can you turn an adjective into an adverb? If so, how? And will the sentence still sound correct? (I don't like the sentence with skillfully in it....), or is there a better way to word the sentence when using adroit?

    P.S. We won't do your work for you, but try to help you think it through.

    I know your won't I don't need you to. I just need to find something that fits. I have to use one of my vocab words and I want to use Adroit in this one but I need to reword it or something because its not sounding right.

    That really helped me and sounds good as a sentence. Thanks for helping!

    How about this:

    My cat is so adroit the way he climbs trees.

    Does that sound right?

    Thanks for your help WonderGirl!
