    How long are you going to stay here?


    Let's pretend my friend from Australia is going to spend his holidays in Russia, Moscow.
    I want to ask him how long he wants to be here.

    Is it polite way to ask:

    "How long are you going to stay here?" or "How long will you stay here?"

    P.S He hasn't arrived yet. I'm just wondering.

    If my sentences are not natural, what will you say?

    Thanks in advance.

    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.
