Literally, it translates to “我已经好久没见到你了。(Wǒ yǐjīng hǎo jiǔ méi jiàn dào nǐ le.)” You can also use this shorter version “好久不见。(Hǎo jiǔ bú jiàn.) Long time no see.”
Here is a video lesson about “好久不见。(Hǎo jiǔ bú jiàn.)” you might find useful.

"My two children are taking lessons at a local Chinese school. Because they are taking classes only at weekends, I was interested in finding an online approach that could supplement their learnings in schools. Your approach is easy to follow for my kids and they are already making good progress!"
