If I want to do something repeatedly every day for about 15 minute. What should I say? For example, is the sentence "I've decided to check my Facebook account one time at the day" correct?
Let's use exercise as an example:
- I exercise once daily
- I exercise everyday
- I exercise everyday for 15 minutes
- I exercise everyday at 1pm for 15 minutes
The grammar structure is: Subject, Verb, count, time, duration
This is the simplest way to express the idea you are trying to express.
EDIT: Bonus lesson: (Nouns are bold, verbs are italic, adjectives are normal, Is/does are normal as well).
Your question should read: Is the sentence “I've decided to check my Facebook account one time at the day” correct?
- Does noun verb adjective
- Does this sentence look correct?
- Is noun adjective?
- Is this sentence correct?
This post may help you as well: When to use "is" vs. "does" when asking a question?
The sentence you are looking for is: "I have decided to check my Facebook account once daily." or "I have decided to check my Facebook account one time a day."
If you do an activity only one time during each day, you would say "I've decided to check my Facebook account once a day."
If you do it two times each day, you would say "twice a day."
Three times would be "three times a day," four times would be "four times a day," etc.
There is an old-fashioned word, "thrice," which means three times, but it is hardly heard anymore.
