"I'll be in the next half an hour there."

That's my boy, native speaker of English, who has been inundated with German for the last few months. How do I tell him that the above sentence does *not* work in English, when I know that him saying that means he's truly thinking in German sentence structures now???

I'm not particularly worried about his English, frankly, so I'm going to let it go.
