    How to say : "There is no problem if you do it next week."

    Hello,


    I need to reply to a commercial email where my "colleague" says that he we will do the job next week.

    Is it good English to say "There is no problem if you do it next week." ?
    Would this one be better : "It sounds good to me if you do this next week. " ?

    Thanks for your help

    I wouldn't use your first one. Better, I think, would be: I'm fine with you doing it next week.

    Your first one is okay.
    The second one sounds like you prefer that he/she do it next week.

    You could also say simply "Next week will be fine."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
