ESL Conversations: 50 How Often Questions

Published on March 28, 2022 | Updated on March 28, 2024

We use “how often” to ask questions about the frequency in which we do things. 

“How often” comes at the beginning of the clause as you can see in the following sentences

  • How often do you go to the cinema?
  • How often do you play soccer?
  • How often do you watch anime?
  • How often do you watch TV?

To answer questions with how often, you need to know two important topics:

  • Frequency Adverbs
  • Simple Present

Let’s check more things about how often questions so you can make and answer those type of questions correctly

How Often and Frequency Adverbs

How often questions require that you manage frequency adverbs so you can answer this type of questions

These are the most common frequency adverbs in English:

Always I always go out on Friday Nights
NeverShe never plays soccer with her friends
SometimesSometimes I go running with my best friend
RarelyHe rarely goes to the gym
