のは for emphasis

Post by squarezebra » Thu 09.03.2009 3:16 pm

Hi friends,
I'm scouting for help again i'm afraid : /

英会話のクラスは月曜日と水曜日にあります。 : The english conversation class takes place on monday and wednesdays.
 So i need to change the emphasis here. Are these correct?

ーーーー>
a) 英会話のクラスあるのは月曜日と水曜日です : it is on monday and wednesday that the english conversation class takes place
b)  月曜日と水曜日にあるのは英会話のクラスです : it is the english conversation class that takes place on monday and wednesday

Thanks! :D
