Subject: Meeting 16 th March

Attachments: none

I'm afraid I may not be able to make the 8:00 start. The train connections can be very difficult at that time of day.

Would it be possible to start at 9:00? It means we would finish at 17:00 instead of 16:00. Please let me know if that's a problem for you.

Hello, Denis

Best regards, David

You asked me to send the scenario and I am attaching it here. Please note that this is not yet in final draft and there may be some mistakes.

Thanks for sending the agenda for our meeting.

I'm looking forward very much to seeing you next week.

Ex. 5 2 You are Denis Markov. Write a reply to David Jameson. Say that you can start at 9:00 but you will have to finish at 16:00 because you have to take part in University sports competition after that. Suggest that you take a shorter lunch break so you can finish earlier. Don`t forget to thank David for the report.
