    Default Via another person

    1. She never discusses things with me directly. She just says via another person.
    2. She never directly talks about things with me. She just says through another person.

    Are these sentences ok to say?

    Thank you so much

    2. She never directly talks about things with me. She just says what? through another person. I suggest moving directly to the end of the first sentence.

    via sounds very formal in this context, as it does in most contexts. Through is a perfectly good English word!
