Hello,

I am translating a sentence into English, and this is my guess:

"For instance, in Holland, you are often asked whether you want a 32-hour work week or a 40-hour one."

My questions is related to "...a 32-hour work week..." . It sounds well to me, but I am not so certain about it.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi lou

    In general, I think that in BrE we normally say 40-hour working week rather than work week.

    In your specific sentence, I'd be most likely to put 'work' earlier and use it as a verb: ... you are often asked whether you want to work a 32-hour week or a 40-hour week.
