    once each week

    Hi,

    *self-made*

    I'd like to ask if it is OK to say 'I will go swimming once each week' or not. Can we use 'each' instead of 'a'?

    Thanks.

    It isn't natural that way.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: once each week

    It's not natural but it's not wrong.

    I'll go once a week.
    I'll go once every week.
    I'll go once each week.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: once each week

    More natural is, "I'm going to go ...", "I plan to go ..." But what you actually say depends on the context.

    Doctor: You need to get more exercise.
    You: OK, I'll go swimming once a week.

    Friend: What are you going to do on your holidays?
    You: Well, I'm going to go swimming once a week. /I plan to ...

    Friend: What are your exercise plans for the summer?
    You: I plan to go swimming once a week.
