Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
.. so in academies of the male and female sex it occurs every now and then that the pupil is fully worthy of the praises bestowed by the disinterested instructor.
every now and then = occasionally, from time to time; also, periodically
Thanks for your efforts.
infrequently, not often
