    Condition and situation

    Jen has just moved to Paris. Her friend Jason wants to ask Jen:

    1. "Jen, tell me more about your current situation in Paris, please. "

    2. "Jen, tell me more about your current condition in Paris, please ."

    Which sentence is correct?

    Thanks.

    Hi Piscean,

    What does "stuffy" mean in your sentence?

    Thanks.

    Re: Condition and situation

    Like the way I've been told I speak French. As it came from a Québécoise, I wasn't entirely sure how to take it -- it would be impossible for me to speak the version of French they use there without spending many months immersed in it.
    I am not a teacher.
