    annual leave

    At work, do you say "I got three days of annual leave"?
    In Korea, each employee is given a specific number of vacation days such as 13 days or 15 days or even more and these vacation days set in a year are called "annual leave".
    They sometimes say "I spent one annual leave day, so totally 12 days are left" if he or she has total number of 13 days of annual leave.
    How do you say this related to vacation days?

    Re: annual leave

    If you're trying to say how many days of annual leave you are entitled to each year, use "I get XXX days' annual leave".

    I get 15 days' annual leave. I've taken six already so I've got nine left.

    Re: annual leave

    Do companies and employees actually use the the term "annual leave" instead of vacation?

    Re: annual leave

    In the UK, that's exactly what it's called. We don't use "vacation" either in this context or when talking about leisure trips. Some people/companies call it "annual holiday [entitlement]".
