次 cì

For measuring the times of repeated actions

去一次 qù yí cì/ qù yi cì
做一次 zuò yí cì/ zuò yi cì
试一次 shì yí cì/ shì yi cì

如果可以的话,一周去一次。
rú guǒ kě yǐ de huà, yì zhōu qù yí cì.
Go once a week if you can.

你通常只需这样做一次。
nǐ tōng cháng zhǐ xū zhè yàng zuò yí cì.
You usually only have to do this once.

如果你想要的话,我们可以再试一次。
rú guǒ nǐ xiǎng yào de huà, wǒ men kě yǐ zài shì yi cì.
We can have another try if you want.

N.B.

When the number of repeated actions is one, there are two ways to pronounce 一. If you need to emphasize the number, 一 should have a tone. If you need to emphasize the action, 一 should be neutral.

Used when describing a story happened in the past
