When you want to know the amount of time needed to get from Point A to Point B, you can ask:

  • Chris: How long does it take to get from NYC to Miami?
  • Ted: It takes about three hours by plane. Not, I take ~

When you want to know the amount of time needed to do something, you can ask:

  • Chris: How long does it take to bake homemade bread?
  • Ted: It takes about 4 hours. Not, I take ~

When you want to know the amount of time someone needs to do something, you can ask:

  • Chris: How long does it take you to get to work in the morning?
  • Ted: It takes me about 25 minutes. Not, I take ~

Remember! In conversations like these, when we use take, we do not say I take, we say, it takes.
