    schedule of vs. schedule for

    Hi, everyone!

    "This is the teaching schedule of the summer courses."

    "This is the teaching schedule for the summer courses."

    Which of the above sentences is correct? Both of them sound right to me, but I guess one of them should be more appropriate and widely used than the other. Many thanks!

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com, my fellow HongKonger!

    The following dictionaries say that 'schedule of' has a different meaning.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: schedule of vs. schedule for

    They both work for me. If I were forced to choose, I would choose "for".

    I'd use for too, but of sounds fine here.
