    Until when u have your holidays? #FixIt

    I will keep posting asking for help whenever I think of something I wanted to say but couldn't figure out a complete smooth sentence.I need the sentence used in more to casual conversation instead of formal.

    Situation:
    Today I was going to ask my friend about how long he will have his holidays but the 1st sentence came through my mind is until when you have your holidays.How should I ask in casual and perhaps western way?

    Re: Until when u have your holidays? #FixIt

    These seem natural to me:

    How long are you on holiday for?
    When are you on holiday till?


    Note that forms such as i, gonna, u and hv.may be acceptable in personal texts and emails, but we don't use them in standard writing,

    'Thx' is not acceptable either.

    Remember to put a space after each comma and after every punctuation mark that ends a sentence.

    If you are being told for the first time, 'telling' should be used instead of 'reminding'.
