position of adverbs

Can you tell me(with examples) if there is a rule about the position of adverbs in English?

For example : also , always , often , yet , already?

For instance , I have to say " I always know that.." or "I know always that.." ecc

    In italiano, se l'avverbio si riferisce a un verbo si colloca dopo di esso.
    Ho mangiato MOLTO.

    Se l'avverbio è di tempo (appena, mai, sempre, spesso, subito, ecc.) o di giudizio (forse, neanche, nemmeno, ecc.) di solito si colloca tra l'ausiliare e il participio (ma non è obbligatorio)

    Ho SEMPRE mangiato la pizza con le mani.
    Ho SEMPRE saputo questo.
