    Red face the schedule of/for classes

    Hi,

    To mean (an elementary school) class schedule, which is more idiomatic?

    1. the schedule for classes
    2. the schedule of classes

    Thanks in advance.

    Neither. 2 sounds to me slightly better, but 'time-table' is idiomatic.

    I might be wrong but I think in AmE, "class schedule" is OK. In BrE, as Bob said, it's "timetable" (note that I would not use a hyphen).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I wondered about the hyphen - it's definitely on the way out.

    I think it must have been on the way out for at least four decades. I've never seen it used (until this thread).
