Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your online English teacher, founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

I hope you’re doing great; I’m back from the summer holidays with plenty of energy and with a brand new episode.

In this episode:

  • I’ll teach you to express the frequency in English.
  • And with a point of point of view story, you’ll practice the vocabulary that I mention in the first section.
  • Lastly, I’ll talk about an exciting topic: intensive reading vs. extensive reading. How to build vocabulary and consolidate what you already know.

By the way, thank you for listening to this podcast. I’m more than happy to create content that will help you improve your English.

Alright! Let’s get started!

When you want to know how often something occurs, you ask questions like: “How often?” or “How frequently?”

If you want to show exactly how frequently something occurs you use words like daily, weekly, once or twice, three times, etc.

Example:

How often do you go to the gym?

“I go to the gym daily, weekly, it all depends on my mood.”

Here are some similar words that you can use to tell people how often something happens:

Hourly, monthly, yearly, every second, once a minute, twice a year, once, twice, etc

On the other hand, when we can’t guarantee how often something happens, we use words like often or rarely. These words still give us an idea of the frequency, but not accurately.
