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.

The first is correct, if a little stuffy. The second is unnatural.

Hi Piscean,

What does "stuffy" mean in your sentence?

Thanks.

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.
