We need a specific question in this forum, Olive. Global re-write requests are off limits.
Thank you !! I am writing about my practicum in a school and I want to find the better way to express that the class that I conducted was made once a week during just one hour.Welcome to the forum, Olive Flower!
Please tell us which part of the sentence you think might be a problem. We're happy to discuss specific questions about a word or phrase. Also, please explain the situation in which you would use the sentence. What do you want it to mean?
Thank you both!If it's simply time and duration, your sentence "The class took one hour, weekly" is not bad.
This is simpler: The class met weekly, for an hour.Please explain what you want your sentence to mean, using other words. For example, are you trying to describe a class that met every Tuesday from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m.?
'During an hour' suggests that the class took place at some time for some length of time in an hour, which is clearly not what is meant.
During the school holidays we spent a week in Portugal.
'During' does not mean 'lasting' an hour, in case there's some 'false-friend' influence here.
It isn't clear whether "during one hour" is intended to mean "at the same time each week" or "taking one hour to complete". For either meaning "during one hour" is not a good way to say it."The classes took place weekly during one hour"
Mr. Dojibear, thank you so much for the detailed explanation!It isn't clear whether "during one hour" is intended to mean "at the same time each week" or "taking one hour to complete". For either meaning "during one hour" is not a good way to say it.
For the first meaning "at the same hour" or "at the same time" is better.
For the second meaning ", lasting one hour" is better.
