    Comparison of number of times

    Hi,

    I am trying to find the equivalent of those two french expressions in english.

    "Je l'ai fait deux fois plus" means "I did it twice more", the amount is multiplied by two.
    "Je l'ai fait deux fois de plus" means that instead of having done it n times, I did it n+2 times.

    Is there some english expressions that clearly make the difference ?

    Thanks.

    Are there some English expressions that mean the same thing?
    Yes, here's one:
    I did it two more times.
