    Smile What about these expressions?

    Hello

    Would you help me with the expression of time?

    #1 It takes 20 minutes to go to the theater.

    I think we can also say #2. (Is it OK?)
    #2 It is a twenty-minute walk to go to the theater.

    How about #3? Does this make sense?
    #3 It is twenty minutes to go to the theater.

    Thank you.

    Re: What about these expressions?

    #2- I'd say 'It is a twenty-minute walk to go to the theater'.
    #3- I wouldn't say this.
