    I want to change the sentence to an easier one. How long is the distance..

    Hello everyone,

    How long is the idstance between you and your uncle while you are talking on the mobile phone?
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    It is an introduction to an essay. I want to say How long is the distance from you and your friend overseas is during a mobile phone call.

    I am suggesting that, if you want to shorten it, you should say 'what is the distance..."

    No, the rest of your sentence is as direct as it can be.
