    Question singular or plural?

    Hello.
    I have some difficulties when I'm asked to make sentences with "time" and "times". When should I use the singular form and when the plural form? Are there any fixed idioms or it is just a matter of the sentence's context?

    Hello, naty.csrg. Welcome to the forum.
    Context is very important. Why don't you post some examples of what you think would be the correct usage? Someone will be happy to comment on them.
