    Re: Could I say....?

    ]Welcome to the forum, Niki.

    We need more context. All of the following sentences are fine:

    I will be very pleasant to your parents when they come.
    I would be very pleasant to your parents if they accepted me.
    I will/would be very pleased to see you this evening
    .

    Please try to give your threads a useful title. 'Will/would be pleasant?' would have been more useful for this one.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your help.
    Of course it is better to write a full sentence.
    I'd like to say...

    If you have interest in our products I will be very pleasant to send to you samples.

    So, how is it?

    Thank you!
    Do you think in this case "pleased" is suitable word or "glad", and "happy" sounds better?

    Re: Could I say....?

    I don't see much difference in that context.

    You can also say "It will be my pleasure to send you some samples." That might be the most professional choice.
    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.
