I'm wondering if both of the following ways are possible.
Thank you for confirming my place on the English course STARTING July 5th.
Thank you for confirming my place on the English course WHICH starts July 5th.
Can somebody tell me the difference in meaning or any other aspect between them? Is it just that one way is more formal than the other?
I have come across many articles in newspapers and books indicating the event which will take place with a verb ending in ing.
As Spanish is my mother toungue, we would literaly say " I have a meeting THAT starts at seven o'clock. " I have a meeting WHICH starts at seven o'clock ( this one is more formal). or "I have a meeting STARTING at seven o'clock " . But among the three, starting is by far the less common.
Can someone tell me the only possible ways in English and which one is more common?
