a question!!!!!

Postby sabara » Mon Feb 21, 2005 9:52 am

My friends, is correcto so say "once a time"????
With this sentence I want to say that the situation happened only the first time, and never repeted. If it's not correct, what is the best expression to use in this situation???

No, that expression is not correct. You should say Just once, or only once.

Mali,

Do you like games?
At Ec Forum there´s a section of games that include vocabulary, two word verbs, grammar, etc. Try in this section. ;)
