    often/sometimes

    Please help me.

    a.He often goes to the pub.
    b.He sometimes goes to the pub.

    How many times would you think he goes to the pub?
    I know the Japanese equivalent for these two words, but
    I'm not really sure how different they are.

    I'd like to hear as many opinions as possible.
    Thank you.

    Re: often/sometimes

    a.He often goes to the pub.

    I would say 3 times a week.

    b.He sometimes goes to the pub.

    I would say once a month.

    How many times would you think he goes to the pub?

    Another person would give you different answers. It depends how you look at it.


    This order may help you.

    never ----rarely/seldom ----sometimes ---- frequently--- often --- always
