I'm confused about vez, help please?

Vez can mean time, once and sometimes when a veces. Is it based on context or is there something using just veces? or vecen? Thank you.

una vez = once ("one time") dos veces = twice ("two times") a veces = sometimes ("at times") a la vez = at the same time

If you know French, it's like "fois."

"Vez can mean time, once and sometimes when a veces."

Could you clarify what you meant by this? Are you asking about the difference between "vez and "a veces"? If so,

"vez" (as you already know) means "time", as in una vez = once; dos veces = twice; última vez = last time.

"a veces" = "sometimes"; "at times"
