    Cool Funny sentences with....

    hello everyone,


    I have to build up funny sentences in the present simple tense with the following time expressions:

    1. once in a while ( for example: Shrek washes his teeth once in a while)

    2. every now and again

    3. in general

    4. several times a year

    5. once a fortnight

    Have you written any yet? How do you understand "in general" to relate to time?

    Chicken Sandwich was pointing out the rules of this forum. I would expect a more adult response from a teacher than the one you posted here. Do not expect others to do your work for you. If you have written some sentences, post them here for comments.
