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. :roll:

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
