    Annual Leave

    An employee may use annual leave for vacations, rest and relaxation, and personal business or emergencies. An employee has a right to take annual leave, subject to the right of the supervisor to schedule the time at which annual leave may be taken. An employee will receive a lump-sum payment for accumulated and accrued annual leave when he or she separates from Federal service or enters on active duty in the armed forces and elects to receive a lump-sum payment.
    Advance Annual Leave

    Supervisors may grant advance annual leave consistent with agency policy. The amount of annual leave that may be advanced is limited to the amount of annual leave an employee would accrue in the remainder of the leave year. Employees do not have an entitlement to advance annual leave. In most cases, when an employee who is indebted for advance annual leave separates from Federal service, he or she is required to refund the amount of advance leave for which he or she is indebted.
    Code:
    Maximum Annual Leave That May Be Carried Over into the New Leave Year 
    
    Federal Employees Stationed within the United States 30 days 
    Federal Employees Stationed Overseas 45 days 
    Members of the Senior Executive Service  90 days

    "May I" is generally better than "Can I".

    Try something like 'find out' instead of 'know'.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Or perhaps, "Could you please tell me"

    Just so you know, "this" is singular. If you say "this sentences", you must either mean "these sentences" or "this sentence".

    What language do you speak? I might be learning it right now .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.
