Adverbs of frequency in Spanish

What are adverbs of frequency?

They are words we use to speak about how often something happens.

For example:
How often do you play tennis? I play tennis every day.
¿Con qué frecuencia juegas al tenis? Juego al tenis todos los días.

Position of adverbs of frequency

Most adverbs of frequency are placed after the verb in Spanish but the adverbs siempre, nunca and raramente usually precede the verb.

Most adverbial phrases like "de vez en cuando" can either precede or follow a verb.

Every in Spanish

Every = todos los
Every day = todos los días
Every week = todos los semanas
Every year = todos los años

Once, twice, etc. in Spanish

once = una vez
twice = dos veces
three times = tres veces

four times a week = cuantro veces por semana
eight times a year = ocho veces al año

Note the change in spelling VEZ is singular VECES is plural
