Quick question, how would I say "Have you spoken with your parents about me staying at your house yet?"

Could it simply be

我问一下,关于我在你们家住几天, 你跟你的家庭说了没 ?

or does 关于 sound too formal?



The question above should suffice.

  • Could I not say 关于?

  • @Stephen 关于 is often used in a more formal conversation.

  • @Aldour: Why not "你有沒有告訴父母我會在你家留宿?"

  • Because it seems that Stephen wants to ask the question verbally, or in a less formal way. So I gave my opinion, trying to be as "verbal" as possible.

Your sentence is OK, except that parents means 父母, so you need change 家庭 to 父母.

And 关于 is necessary in your sentence. Anyway, your sentence is formal as a whole.
