Hi there. My name is Emma,

0:03

and in today's video I am going to teach you a very, very important grammar point.

0:09

I'm going to teach you about a mistake many, many students make.

0:15

So I don't want you to make this mistake, so let's get started. In this video I am going

0:20

to teach you the difference between

0:23

"How long", "How long time", "How much time" and "How many times".

0:32

Students often confuse these four expressions. So let's look at some of the differences.

0:41

So I have here a question. I actually have three different sentences, here. One of them

0:48

is right, two of them are wrong. Okay? So let's look at these together. The first one:

0:54

"How long time have you been here?"

0:57

The second one: "How long have you been here?"

1:02

And the third one: "How many time have you been here?"

1:08

So one of these is correct. Which one do you think is right?

1:14

If you said: "How long time have you been here?" that's incorrect. This

1:20

one, it's wrong. Number two: "How long have you been here?" If you said this one, you

1:29

are correct. This is right. What about the last one? "How many time have you been here?"

1:36

This one is also wrong, but we can make it right if we add an "s". So let's go over each

1:46

of these so you can find out why some of these are wrong, and why some of them are right.

1:51

To get started, let's look at "How long". So when we ask somebody: "How long...?" we

1:58

are asking them about time. Okay? We want to know the amount of time for something.
