    Dear teacher,

    Would you please give us your opinion a below email?

    After the partner write mail and agreed discount 10% for our contract agreement. And we have to reponse this letter as:

    Thank you for your email. We would like to confirm that our contract agreement amount is 10,000USD. We hope to cooparate with you soon.

    Could you show me other way to respon this letter?

    Thanks so much,

    I am not a teacher, but I think the email looks pretty good. I would change the second sentence to:

    We would like to confirm that our revised contract agreement is now 10,000 USD.

    This will emphasize that the amount has changed due to the 10% discount.

    Also, I would say "work with you" instead of "cooperate with you"

    I hope this is helpful

    In addition to luschen's changes, I would change the last sentence to: "We look forward to working with you."

    Are you sure the amount you show reflects the 10% discount? It must have been a very strange first price indeed to have a 10% discount come out to such a round figure.
    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.
