What would be the right equivalent for "current" when I speak in terms of the past?
For example, this sentence sounds okay to me:
These days, increasing her listening comprehension is all she needs to do at her current stage of learning French.
but when I put it into past, something just doesn't sit right with the usage of "current":
In those days, increasing her listening comprehension was all she needed to do at her current stage of learning French.
Is my apprehension here correct? It looks to me that the word "current" has an invisible, yet quite a strong connection to the time of speaking and, thus, cannot be easily used in the past.
