    every third Friday

    Does "every third Friday" mean "third Friday in each month" or " 3th, 6th, 9th....Friday from the beginning"?

    33)She accepts your refusal politely, but the next night she calls again. This time she wants to know whether you would be willing to supervise volleyball every third Friday. You still feel like itís a big obligation that you really donít want to

    Re: every third Friday

    not a teacher

    In my experience, if the third Friday of the month is intended then that's what will be stated: "Volleyball is on the third Friday of every month".
    "Every third Friday" means that you miss two Fridays and volleyball is on the next one, then you miss another two… etc.
