Writes file path instead of the sentence :(

class Program {

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        string currDirectory = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();
        DirectoryInfo directory = new DirectoryInfo(currDirectory);
        var fileName = Path.Combine(directory.FullName, "proba.txt");
        var file = new FileInfo(fileName);
        if (file.Exists)
        {
            using (var reader = new StringReader(file.FullName))
            {
                Console.SetIn(reader);
                Console.WriteLine(Console.ReadLine());
            }
        }
        Console.ReadKey();
    }

(proba.txt contains: Hello World) I Wrote it by myself and I didn't notice any difference between this and the one in the video but it writes the file path instead of the sentence.

I notice one difference from the video in this line:

using (var reader = new StringReader(file.FullName))

You use StringReader while the video uses StreamReader. If you correct that mistake then that will almost certainly fix your issue.
