    can I use adjective clause for "week"?

    Are they correct?

    Many many thanks.

    1. The project lasts for six weeks in which six seminars are held in every Saturday.

    2. I will go to Europe for five weeks during which I will meet a lot of old friends.

    If not, how to write correctly with the same meaning?

    Truly appreciate for your help.:)

    They look OK to me, if a bit clumsy. But formal grammar is not my strong point - I'd wait for another teacher's reaction.

    Here, while you're waiting, are my proposed rewrites:
    • The project lasts for six weeks, with [regular*] Saturday seminars
    • During my five-week trip to Europe I'll meet a lot of friends


    * Almost optional. Without it there could be fewer; but you can judge from the context whether you have to be explicit about this - at any rate '...six...six...' seems to me excessively punctilious!
