How often questions in English

(1) How often do you study English? How often should you study?

When I started learning English, I had at least two or three lessons per week. Now I don’t study with a teacher anymore, because my level of English is good already. In the beginning it’s important to study with a teacher, but you should also do something on your own every day. So our brain is getting used to the English language and we become more and more fluent! 

(2) How often are you in trouble with someone? Who and why?

Not often. I’m a friendly person and I don’t like to have troubles with anybody. 

(3) How often do you feel on top of the world? Is it a good feeling?

When I do something and it brings great results, I always feel on top of the world. I think it’s a good feeling.

(4) How often do you like going shopping?

I do the shopping almost every day. I go to the supermarket to buy food and the other necessary items we need for everyday life. As for going shopping for clothes, it’s not so often.

(5) How often do you think about the world’s future? Are they good thoughts?

Pretty often. Our future is not clear and it’s quite scary. On the other hand I understand that it’s important to live for the day and not to think too much about the future.

(6) How often do you get angry with other people?

I don’t like getting angry. I try to stay calm in any situation, despite it’s not so easy sometimes.  

(7) How often did you get presents when you were a child?

Pretty often! Thanks to my parents I had a wonderful childhood. I got gifts from them, but they never spoiled me. I think it’s a good way of raising children.

(8) How often do you wish you were somewhere else or someone else? Who and where?

Not often. I like being myself. 

(9) How often do you exercise? Do you like sports?

I do like sports and try to go to the gym every week. I am lucky to have a gym right inside the building I work in. It’s so convenient!

(10) How often are you ill? Is this more or less often than your friends?

I usually get sick once a year. I can’t say how often my friends are ill. They all are different. Someone gets sick more often, someone doesn’t get sick at all!
