    sit

    Hi

    Is it OK to say: All seats have been taken, where will I sit Mark and Peter now?

    Is the word "sit" OK? Maybe "settle"?

    Re: sit

    Hi

    Why did you change "will" into "shall"? I don't think it's necessary.

    Where shall I... ? is a form of asking for a suggestion; Where will I... ? is a mere indicaton of a future action.

    Re: sit

    Right.
    But I'm not asking anyone for a suggestion. I'm just wondering where I will seat them since all places have been already taken.

    I know what you mean. Mind that a suggestion is not always something that other people suggest to you; it might be asking yourself what action to take in a particular situation. Gdzie mam teraz posadzić... ?
