    Default Doubts about how to construct a sentence

    1) The first doubt I have is in this sentence:

    I want to confirm both the classes on Monday and the ones on Tuesday.

    Is it correct to say this or would it be better saying...?

    I want to confirm both Monday classes and Tuesday ones.

    2) The second doubt I have is in this sentence:

    Can you tell me where the classes are to take place?

    Is this construction correct? Or is it better to say:

    Can you tell me where the classes will take place?

    Thank you verry much.

    1) "I want to confirm that I will attend the classes on Monday and Tuesday."
    2) Both are OK.
