If there are two adverbs of time the more precise one is first!
Example: He is going to have a skiing lesson at 10 a.m. on Monday.
NOTE: A verb sometimes consists of two or more words! Then the adverb of indefinite time has to be put between them:
|Verb 1||Adverb||Verb 2|
|Are you||definitely||going||to the party?|
|Your car||has||probably||been stolen.|
NOTE: Adverbs of indefinite time go before have to.
Example: We always have to wait a long time for the bus.
NOTE: Adverbs of indefinite time go after am, is, are, was or were. But in questions the adverb is put after the subject.
Example: You are never on time. Are they always on holidays in July?
