    "doesn't seem"


    "Is he done with his speech?"
    "No. It doesn't seem like he is going to stop for another hour" or " It seems like he is not going to stop for another hour".
    Or "To me there is no sign for him to stop for another hour".

    Which one is natural?

    Thank you!

    The first two seem equally natural to me. The third is not natural.
