    to be at a crossroads vs at the crossroads

    Dear members

    May I ask you a question?
    My daughter wants to study abroad. I suggest that she study in Italy. On the other hand, my wife suggests that she study in Germany.
    My daughter doesn't know what to do.
    It seems as if she is at a crossroads.
    It seems as if she is at the crossroads.

    Which one is idiomatic in English?

    I would be glad if you answered my question. Thank you.

    Re: to be at a crossroads vs at the crossroads

    I would use the indefinite article.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
