  • english -

    The word, VERY, modifies the noun, little.

    Which part of speech do you think VERY is?

  • english -

    "little" is an adverb. VERY is an adverb that modifies little, so in the end, very is an adverb that modifies the adverb little.

  • English -

    Here's my reasoning.

    The word, "little," is a noun because it is the direct object of the verb, "will learn." It tells WHAT you will learn.

    Similar constructions:

    you will learn a little
    you will learn nothing

    It seems to me that VERY is an adjective, modifying the noun, little.

  • english -

    OK, I accept that logic.
