    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

    Go ahead. We'll comment on your sentences.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    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.
