    Question Stay overnight

    Hi,

    I want to say in english that my friend is staying in my house for a couple of days. I was going to write my friend is staying overnight but I found in the dictionary that it meant saying for one day.


    Shall I say my friend is staying overnight for a few days or staying over...or there is another expression?


    Thank you

    You state it fine in your question: your friend is staying in your house (or with you) for a couple of days.
