It s correct. Both are.

the form with are there is more grammatically correct, and the form without there is used in spoken English more often. If you had to prepare students to international tests or exams, you would have to focus more on the garammatical aspect as they always prepare exam tasks to see how much grammar there s in your language (unfortunatellyUnhappy)
bye for now
