    I need your help

    Hi

    A: ..................home this evening?
    B: Yes, I will. I will be working on a project.

    Could you help me with the most appropriate answer?

    Shall I say :
    A: Will you be at home this evening?


    Thank you very much in advance.

    Should I say :
    A: Will you be at home this evening?

    Yes - that's correct. It is just a little more formal and precise than
    Will you be home this evening?

    and colloquially:
    "Are you going to be in tonight?"

    hi Teia,

    Another option would be:

    A: Will you be working at home this evening?
    B: Yes, I will. I will be working on a project.





    kind regards,

    Madox

    Hi Mad - ox

    Thank you very much for your answer. It looks good to me too. However, I am not sure if A anticipated what B was going to do that evening. A asked if B was at home that evening and B offered him/her a further explanation on what s/he was going to do that evening.

    Mai exact: A intreaba doar daca B va fi acasa. Nu este sigur/a ca va fi. B vine cu o explicatie in plus: va fi acasa si va avea de lucru la un proiect. Multumesc mult.

    All the best.

    Teia

    Indeed, you are right. This is a matter of interpretation!
