    Cool before i can do or doing

    Good evening,

    I'm suddenly completely confused ! Can you tell me which structure is correct here please:

    "We'll probably have Spanish class on Thursdays but I still need to receive some of your colleagues' replies before confirming this/before I can confirm this. "

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    WIll

    Thanks a lot for your help! Unnecessary. Just click 'Thank' when you get a useful answer.

    They are both correct and mean the same.

    before I can do or doing

    Always capitalize the word I.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
