移動の所用時間を尋ねてみよう

Asking how long it takes from an airport to get to Point A
空港からどれくらいかかるのか尋ねてみよう。
もしあなたが3人の人にある地点から次の地点までどのくらいかかるか尋ねたら、3通りの異なる回答を得るかも知れません。そしてもちろん、それはあなたがどれだけ速く歩くか、渋滞があるか等によります。取敢えず尋ねましょう。英語を勉強するのには良い方法です。もしかしたら新しい友達ができるかも知れませんね。

How long do I take to reach San Francisco? I'm in a rush so if you possible to be hurry?

自然な表現

How long will it take me to reach San Francisco? I'm in a rush so could you possibly hurry?

1. We need to use the formation ''will it take me'' to properly ask this question;
2. We need to use ''could you possibly hurry'' to simplify the question and make it more natural.
Well, it depends on where you're coming from. If you're flying in from Haneda in Tokyo it can take about ten hours. If you're flying from Phoenix, Arizona it will only take you a couple of hours. So you see, I need to know where you're coming from.

That's a plausible answer. I am from LA, so I wonder which is faster between plane or ground.

自然な表現

That's a plausible answer. I am from L.A., so I wonder which is faster, to fly or to drive?

1. The correct spelling is ''L.A.'';
2. It is best to name the actions that define the transportation, which in this case are '', to fly or to drive'';
3. We need to use a question mark at the end of the question.
Well, it would definitely be faster and more convenient for you to travel by plane.
It takes about an hour and a half to reach SF from LA.
You can make the reservation online. In addition, you can finish the check-in process online, as well.

What does the check-in process mean? I heard US's security situation be stricted before, so it is need a passport even domestic trip for foreigner, isn't it?

自然な表現

What does the check-in process mean? I heard the US security situation was strict before, so do I need a passport even for domestic trips as a foreigner  ?

1. We do not need to define the possessiveness, but we do need to use article ''the'';
2. We need to use past simple tense;
3. The correct question to be asked is ''do I need'';
4. The correct preposition is for;
5. We need to use the plural form;
6. We need to use ''as a'' to define the the noun ''foreigner'';
7. We do not need to use a tag question.
Actually, no US citizen needs a passport when going from one city to the other as long as they are both within the borders.
However, you are required to check-in - show your ticket and turn over your luggage if you have any.

I see. I have to back to my home to take the passport. Then. I would like to take a UBER but my mobile phone battery has gone so, if you don't mind, could you barrow me your mobile phone?

自然な表現

I see. I have to go back   home to get the passport. Then, I would like to take an uber but my mobile phone battery is low so, if you don't mind, could you lend me your mobile phone?

1. The correct phrasal verb is 'to go back'';
2. We do not need to use ''to my'' in this sentence;
3. The correct verb is ''to get'' the passport;
4. We need to connect ''then'' to the following sentence;
5. We use ''an'' for singular nouns beginning with a vowel;
6. We do not need to write the word in capital letters;
7. We need to directly define the state of the battery;
8. The correct verb to use here is ''lend''.
Of course, if you want, I also have the UBER website on my phone if you want to book that way. Everything these days has online access and is very convenient. Do you do most of your booking online, by phone, or in person?

Thank you so much. I appreciate your kindness. I usually using UBER by application. That is impressive technology because they can reach me on time every time. I sometimes think about it. Are they relly human or AI? something like that.

自然な表現

Thank you so much. I appreciate your kindness. I usually use uber over the application. That is impressive technology because they can reach me on time every time. I sometimes think about it. I sometimes wonder if they are really human or AI? 

1. The correct verb is ''to use'';
2. We do not need to write the word in capital letters;
3. the correct phrasal verb is ''to use something over something else'';
4. We use ''the'' for defined singular and plural nouns;
5. Even though I understood your idea, it is much better to rearrange the words and make the sentence more natural.
