    Is it "She exchanges at glace" or " exchange at glance"?

    Neither one makes sense.

    Re: Exchange at glance

    Do you mean 'she exchanged glances with someone else'?

    "They exchanged glances". That means that two people looked briefly at each other at the same time. You could put "She exchanged glances with him/her".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Exchange at glance

    If I want to say "Whenever she comes in front of me, she exchanges at glances"?

    That sentence does not make sense. "Whenever she comes in front of me" is unnatural and could be read to mean "When she ejaculates in front of my eyes". That would be an unfortunate misunderstanding. I don't know what you are trying to say.

    You don't seem to understand the meaning of "exchange" or "to exchange glances".

    My best guess is "Whenever I see her, we exchange glances".

    Re: Exchange at glance

    But if we have to use it for 3rd person then?. Like "When we sit in front of each other she exchanges at glances". Is it correct now?

    No, it isn't. Have you read the previous answers? You don't seem to have taken much notice of them.

    Re: Exchange at glance

    Tufguy. Read this very carefully.

    "Exchange at glances" is wrong. It doesn't matter what sentence you put it in. It's wrong. Incorrect. Not grammatical. Not usable.

    Stop trying to use those three words together.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
