My answer to the question: I don't know. Maybe hundrets. I can't count, because I write to many messages.

Not normally any, and when I do I do not say any of those words. I spell check it all a few times and then make sure I am not using American but instead English vocabulary I do not use words like awesome which is not English but American. You might think I am not well educated putting a comma (,) before an and but I am not American so I use the "Oxford And"

Hi everyone! How many messages do I send every week, that's a good question. My answer is: I don't know. I never count messages. I send each week. This number changes every week. Usually about a hundred, but sometimes ten or less. My holidays are almost always very interesting and I don’t have time to check messages on the phone and email until late in the evening. But I still always find the time and send some message or photo to my friends. Goodbye, Rose=)

Really, I don't know. It depends, sometimes I send more than one hundred messages but sometimes less than seventy.

I send a lot of messages every week.

As a person, relation with friends is not light, but very important. Giving and receiving messages each other is a part of human's life. So, We have to send message more than one time every week.

I send about 1 million massages a week ! But I'd rather call the person .

Submitted by Thu on Sat, 06/08/2019 - 02:09

I send 30 messages every week. Because we have a lot of things to say. I often chat with them in our group. We are very talkative. Sometimes, we send more than 30 messages in one day. Chat with them is very fun because they have the same hobby as me.

I often send 30 messages every week for my group chat because we have lots of things to say. Sometimes, we send some emojis and stickers. It's cute and funny.
