You use the word 兄(あに) when talking about your elder brother to outsiders.

兄が二人います。
二人の兄がいます。

You can call your eldest brother 長兄 and your second brother 次兄 when talking about them to outsiders.

If say, your second brother is older than you by two years old and your eldest brother is older than you by five years, you can say
(私には)五つ上の長兄と二つ上の次兄がいます。

There are many ways to say the same thing and I'm just keeping it simple.

Something to keep in mind. Thanks.

I've been meaning to ask if there's a difference to use between 営業時間 and 開店時間 or if they're understood.

I spoke to someone about a shop's opening hours with the former in my conversation and it worked...

Also, does "nanimo arimasen" work well when the driver of your vehicle asks which route you want to use and you say it to tell them to use whatever route works for them?

Eigyou jikan means "working hour" and kaiten jikan means "open hours". I would think kaiten jikan is specific for a shop while "working hour" is more general, and applies for offices and the like as well.

Nanimo arimasen is a weird word to use for that. I would think "docchi demo ii desu" or "dono michi mo kamawanai".

Just wanna make sure that I got the last part right. I was worried that it was weird.
