    how to ask

    hello teachers,
    I hope you can help me out.

    Let's say that A is studying abroad and B her friend, wants to know when A is going to finish her studies and return to the motherland.
    I wonder if you can proofread these question-form sentences that I could come out with:

    1. How many years left for you to finish your studies.
    2. How many years left till your graduation
    3. How many years are left till your graduation
    4. How much longer you're going to stay there?

    I wonder what is the most common way to ask?
    please help.
    Thank you.

    I wonder if you can proofread these question-form sentences that I could come out with:

    1. How many years until you finish your studies?
    2. How many years are left till your graduation?
    3. How many years are left till your graduation?
    4. How much longer are you going to stay there?

    I wonder what is the most common way to ask? They're all common. Number 4 implies that the person does not plan to stay until graduation.
    please help.
    Thank you.
