I have been wondering if there is a difference between mou ichido and mou ikkai. I have heard both translated as “one more time” but are they interchangable or do they only apply to specific situations.
A: They are pretty much interchangeable. I can’t really think of a situation where you would use one rather than the other.
Q: Also can you swap ichi out for another number, i.e. two more times, five more times, etc.
A: Good question! You’d think you could, but sadly, no, you can’t! : ) In this case you’d have to say 後２回 – ato ni kai – meaning “after 2 times” or 後５回 – ato go kai for 5 times.
Thank you for all the time, hard work, and enthusiasm that you put into this wonderful website that helps so many people work towards their dreams to learn another language. – Rae
