    Default Puzzling sentences

    Dear Great Teachers,
    Are the following sentences correct grammatically ? If they are not, I need help. Thanks.
    1. Further to our laconic discussion the other day, I attach a complete traning module for your perusal. Should there be any problem with the training module,please let me know so that the module in question can be re-written.
    2. Which college do you attend ? or which college are you attending ?
    Which sentence sounds better in terms of correctness.
    Thanks.

    1- laconic- I wouldn't use this here- it sounds as if you are cricising the person for not talking much
    traning- training
    the module in question- there is only one module, so this is unnecessary- use 'so that it can be rewritten'
    2- Both are OK. If they're doing a longer course, then the first would be better. If they're doing a short course, then use the second.
