    once every two weeks

    Hi,
    What does "once every two weeks" mean? Does it mean "every other week"?

    Thanks.

    Re: once every two weeks

    Kind of but there is one thing.. If the event happens in the beginning of the first 2 weeks and then it happens in the end of the second 2 weeks that's not every other week)
    The event just must happen 1 time per 2 weeks.

    Re: once every two weeks

    For me, it only means "once in each fourteen-day period". It's not necessarily on the same day of each of the two weeks. If you break a month down into four weeks, it could happen once in week 1 (that's once in the first two weeks) and then happen again once in week 4 (that's once in the second set of two weeks). If it happens in week 1 and week 4, then it didn't happen "every other week".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
