English as a Second Language/question

Question
hello,
Is it correct? how many kilometers are there to his work.
I want to ask "how long is it to his work? "in another way.

Answer
Hi Nilo,

the best way to ask that question would be:
How far is this place from your work (place)?

You could say "How many kilometers are from here to his work?" but the above expression is more natural...the kind of thing a native English speaker would say.

I hope this helps.

Best,

Amy
