    'Is the letter written in good English?'
    No.


    It's dreadful.


    If you're an English teacher, I fear for your students.

    It was maximus1523, not me, who wrote the letter.
    By the way, maximus1523 is a Chinese teacher of English.

    The middle part isn't so bad, but the opening made me stop and not want to read any further. The opening is truly awful.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
