    Smile Which is a correct expression?

    A girl is staying at your house. When your friend wants to know who she is, the friend will say,
    A. "Who is the girl staying with you?"
    B. "Who is the girl staying at you?"

    Which is a correct expression (or better expression), A or B?

    Thanks for you kind help.

    A. is correct.
    "staying with you", "staying with your family"

    "staying at your house"; "staying at your place".

    I'm not a professional teacher, but I would definitely say A is the correct option here. I would let my ESOL students know that B would sound unnatural to native speakers.
