    How often /How many times

    Hi,
    is there a difference between how often and how many times?
    For example;
    How many times did you go to paris?
    How often did you go to Paris?

    Thanks
    Rip

    Re: How often /How many times

    For me, how many times? requires a specific answer, like eight.

    How often? can be answered more vaguely, like about three times a year.
