It's been a while since last time I went to a English school.
英語の学校に通うのは久しぶり。

Two hours and a half, twice a week seemed to be a challenging for me.
週に2回、2時間半は私にとって大変。

The teacher was an English, who looked like to be my age.
先生はイギリス人で、私と同い年くらい。

Mostly students who were from South America were much younger than me, they were always speaking even if the teacher didn't ask any questions.
ほとんどの生徒は南アメリカからきた人で、私よりずっと若い。彼らは先生が質問してないのに、いつもしゃべっていた。


We have learned expression which help to be the conversation more naturally, e.g. "I'm going to London." "How long for? ""Who with?".
会話をもっと自然にする表現を習った。たとえば、「ロンドンに行きます。」「どのくらい?」「誰と?」のような。

Since I'm not used to use these short question with preposition, I was confused.
前置詞と一緒になった短い質問に慣れてないので、混乱した。

Just "How long?" is wrong?
「どのくらい?」だけでは間違いなの?

I didn't know "With whom?" is too old, the teacher told us that was used only in Shakespeare's play, but I had heard the expression at an American soup opera lately.
"With whom?"は、とても古いと知らなかった。
先生はシェークスピアの劇でしか使われないと言っていたが、最近アメリカのドラマでこの表現を聞いたけど。
