    Hola amigos, me gustaría saber como se dice esta oración en ingles.
    Yo tomo un poco de tiempo para pensar en lo que voy a decir, así que es por eso que soy un poco lento al hablar.
    Tengo varias versiones para decirlo y me gustaría saber cuales son las correctas.


    1. I take a bit time to think what I am going to say so that’s why I am a little slow when speaking.
    2. I take a bit time to think what I am going to say so that’s why I am a little slow by speaking.
    3. I take a bit time to think what I am going to say so that’s why I am a little slow on having spoken.

    Thanks in advance for your replies!

    In my opinion, only sentence #1 is correct. "by speaking" is not correct and "having spoken" is the wrong tense.

    A lo mejor suena más natural decir:

    "It takes me a little while to think..."

    Me parece que quieres decir 'I take a bit of time.....'
