So, you gave us two sentences, and all of us agree that the first one which is correct. So, use the one you find easy and correct, I promise your English gonna be good and the most important thing is to have a pure English.

    Good luck

    Dear Karima,

    Thanks a lot for the kind lines you dropped. Even between the lines I can feel the joy you have in learning English. Thank you also for your promise! I really do hope it will come to fruition one day. And I for my part appreciate your enthusiasm. It was nice to hear from you. So I send you my best greetings over there to Algeria and remain for the time being with the best wishes for a good night!

    I'm sorry Rover! you are right about using the slang term "gonna". I forget that I'm writing in a language learning forum where we should use standard English not colloquial one, I'm sorry again.

    Native speakers do the same thing occasionally. (Well at least I do! )
    Learning a language can be really challenging but well worth it, as I'm sure you already know.
    Good luck

    Not a teacher.
