    three months

    Dear teachers...

    Could you proofread the following sentence?

    He goes abroad (at) every three months.
    (meaning the interval between the trips is 3 months)

    Many thanks

    Re: three months

    Delete the "at" and you're fine.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
