I haven't seen her in years.
I really have to talk to her. "Talk with" suggests a conversation. "Talk to" suggests "I have something to tell you."
She is fourteen years old.
Can you keep an eye on my bag.
Who is this?
I have luggage to check? (not familiar with "hold")
Sometimes, I tell myself.

    You put baggage 'in the hold'

    Also in BE you could also say 'I haven't seen her for years' too, it sounds fine but probably not grammatically correct.

    Good afternoon,


    I haven't seen her in years or for years ?

    I really have to talk with or to him ?

    She is fourtheen year or years old ?

    Sometimes, I tell myself ?

    Can you keep an eye on or at my bag ?

    On the phone, may I say who is that or who is this ?

    When you take the plane , should I say I have got a luggage to put to the hold or in hold ?

    Thank you,

    Claude.

    It's perfectly correct from the grammatical point of view.
    "in years" is more American.

    You would certainly say I haven't seen her for 3 years.
    I don't like the sound of "in 3 years", but it might sound OK to American ears! :)

    It's a bit hard to tell out of context what you're trying to say with "Sometimes,I tell myself".

    Is there more to follow? For example: "Sometimes, I tell myself (that) ..."

    Or do you mean: "Sometimes I talk to myself" ?
