Dehbaah gave the best answer. Maybe that definition helps you http://www.dictionary.net/first VS http://www.dictionary.net/firstly . Good luck.
Thank you very for your continuous effort in helping ESL....
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

It is incorrect. I am also teaching in China and it is a per pev. Firstly was first coined but uneducated Brits during the industrial revolution in a failed attempt to make themselves sound educated. Standard ordinal numbers for Americans are first, second, third... for British it's first, secondly, thirdly. Please teach them correctly and stop this degradation of language.
