"They're expecting him to arrive at any minute now"
Perhaps a third way to say this is to use the longer form with the subjunctive : "Ils s'attendent à ce qu'il arrive d'une minute à l'autre." Is this ok? Does it convey more or less of the anxiety conveyed by the example using "Ils s'attendent à son arrivé...?" Thanks.
This question relates to:French lesson "Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect"
