Hi, I'm Phil, and I'm going to tell you about the difference between "hard' and 'hardly."
"Hard" we can use in lots of different ways, but it usually means "strong," "difficult," or "intense." - Ow! That ball's hard!
Calculus is hard!
That was really hard work.
"Hardly" is an adverb, and it can mean "almost not."
This is too small. I can hardly read it.
We can use it with "any" to talk about quantity.
For example: There's hardly any water in this cup.
We can use it with "ever" for frequency.
For example: I hardly ever play basketball.
To help you remember: It's hard for me to play tennis because I hardly ever train.
I can hardly walk afterwards because I've been running hard.
And I often get hurt because the ball's hard, and there's hardly any time to get out of the way!
