    Smile Re: At Which Place

    Well... I am not a native speaker of English... however... I would say:

    In what place are you now?

    or simply

    Where are you now?

    Re: At Which Place

    Absolutely - "Where are you now?"

    (And please, not "Where're you at?")

    At which place are you now? This is fine if you are writing poetry.

    Re: At Which Place

    I translated from a lyrics.He means: at which place are you now?, whose place did you go?, whose love are you now, whose family did you join? (Especially when she goes to someone's place as a bride)

    I wonder whether there is a similar saying in english for this situation

    Re: At Which Place

    Well, I hate to appear pedantic, but it IS English.
    American English, specifically, though more and more phraseology seems to be finding its way rapidly 'across the Pond' and finding lodgings here in the minds of people....

    'At which place are you now', would probably be referring to the psychological status of the person's own serenity or happiness... it would be a way of determining how content - or at what level of contentment - the person feels they are......
