Hi,

I was wondering if asking someone: "When do you want that I take you to the cinema?", is grammatically wrong. Can I say it, or it is completely wrong?

Thank you very much.

Welcome to Using English, Lo.mazz. It's not a natural sentence.

The natural way to say this is "When do you want me to take you to the cinema?"
