    What time frame do you want to meet?

    I want to know how to use the words "time frame".

    If someone ask you "Could we meet again?" and you want to know when or how soon he or she wants to meet you again, is it OK to say "What time frame do you have in mind?"

    If not, in what situation would you use the words?

    Thank you in advance,

    Shikemoku

    Re: What time frame do you want to meet?

    It doesn't work for me. I would use it in something like a project or planned activities, setting a limit for everything to be done:

    We have a six-month time frame for the house renovations.

    I am sorry I couldn't reply to you soon.
    I was thinking that way, too, but I was not very sure.

    Thank you, Tdol.
