    Cool How many minutes have I got left?

    Hello amigos!

    How many minutes have I got left?= How many minutes do I have remaining?

    Could anyone give me examples how these sentences could be constructed?
    The second one makes any sense to you?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sam

    Default Re: How many minutes have I got left?

    How many minutes have I got left?
    Normal, colloquial speech but a bad habit to acquire. Try
    How many minutes have I left?

    How many minutes do I have remaining?
    Very nicely phrased. 'Educated' speech
