Hi,

I'm wondering which expression should be used in the following. If both are correct, what's the difference?

John is furious at the moment/at this moment.

I'd appreciate your help.

"at the moment" has the general sense of "now", though that can mean anything from this instant to this week.

"at this moment" conveys the immediate time of now, today, this hour, this minute. It is also often said as, "at this very moment".
