Student or Learner
Please correct in case of any grammatical mistakes. Thanks in advance
Once, I quoted "Let me see how long time the buffering takes."
My friend being a graduate in English literature, corrected me saying, "It should be 'how long' or 'how long a time', and 'how long time' is grammatical wrong."
Please advice, which one is correct:
a. Let me see how long the buffering takes,
b. Let me see how long a time the buffering takes,
c. Let me see how long time the buffering takes, or
d. Let me see how a long time the buffering takes.
P.S: Please correct me if I have made any grammatical mistakes and/or any mistakes with punctuation marks. Better for me and my english language
a. Let me see how long the buffering takes.
Let me see how much time the buffering takes.
Why, accordingly to you, "Let me see how long a time the buffering takes." is incorrect?
I wonder how big a truck we'll need to move all this stuff.
I wonder how small a space we can make do with for the party. The hotels grand ballroom is booked, but there are smaller rooms that are cheaper too.
I wonder how long a time this will take.
(I doesn't have to be "I wonder." I used that to show the parallel stucture.)
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Goggling and Googling don't have the same meaning.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
