How do I use this with verbs with and without nouns, generally I can't find the grammar

I tried googling and search on YouTube but I can't find anything in deep detail

  • Where are you stuck? "I have been there twice" <---> “我去过那两次。” It's plain and straightforward to translate between "time(s)" and 次。

  • Hi, can you please elaborate a little? What do you mean with using 次 with verbs? Or using it with or without nouns? Jun 30, 2021 at 21:59
  • You can do more exercises and you will understand how to use it in different atmosphere of Chinese sentences. Like this one, echineselearning.com/blog/… I have differed 次 and 遍 after finishing.

Verb + 了(for perfect tense)+ number + 次 + objective(only with vt.)

for example:

  1. 春游了5次 2、游了3次泳 3、迟到4次了 = 迟到了4次

次 is offen use as quantifier word, it is similar like time in english.
The verb usage is like this(mean stop):
