    How would you say to a woman in French:

    Are you free to talk a little?

    More context would help, as well as you attempt...:)

    Here is the context. You are wondering if a person is occupied or busy with something at the moment. You just want to ask the person 'Are you free to talk a little?' or 'Are you available to talk a little?'

    Est-ce que je vous dérange ? is not a literal translation, but it gets the idea across.

    I would have said like Pete.
    Or also « tu as une minute/ un moment là ? (Je voudrais te parler) ».
    (or with vous : Vous avez / avez-vous... Je voudrais vous parler)
