During a parent meeting , I heard a teacher say :
- I remain sceptical (on the progress of the child).
and the parent questioning him-
- Why do you continue to remain sceptical?
Isn't "I am sceptical" a better phrasing instead of "I remain sceptical" or is it informal?
continue to remain sceptical- makes sense to me, because the sceptism is based on the past performance which was poor and no improvement is apparent. Does my logic meets the grammar?
