    Question How to ask sb for a talk?

    Dear all.

    Would it be possible to ask in this way? :

    Whenever you feel free let me know to talk."



    Kind regards,

    ES

    I would say 'Please let me know when you are free to talk', but I am not a teacher.

    Re: How to ask sb for a talk?

    "Whenever you feel free" doesn't work in this context. You could say "When you feel like it, ..." or "Whenever you want to, ...".
    "Let me know to talk" is also incorrect in this context. Maybe "Let me know that you would like to talk" would work.

    I would say something like "Feel free to come and talk to me whenever you want" or "You can talk to me whenever you want". Both of those seem to give the same impression as your suggested sentence.

    However, your title suggests something else. It suggests that you want to ask the person for a chat. In that case, I might say "I'd like to talk to you. Let me know when you're free" or "Let me know when you have a moment and we can have a chat".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The four words that men in relationships fear the most are "we need to talk".
