    Please correct my sentence


    Recently I used the sentence

    "After how much time, you want me to join?"

    ( time in days or months )

    Is that statement correct?

    If not, why and what is the correct statement please let me know?

    Re: Please correct my sentence

    Welcome to the forum, kalyan.hcu. ;hi:

    It may depend on what the speaker wants me to join - a club, a person, a shio, or something else. Your sentence, as it stands, is not natural. You might want to say:

    How long should I wait before I join you?
