    Default noisy

    Teacher, are these sentences OK?

    If there is any vacant desk in the future, I would like to request to move there. As my desk is next to the photocopier, it is very noisy when someone is photocopying and at times I feel hot, I believe, as a result from the temperature from the photocopier.

    I would start with "If a different desk becomes available in the future ..."
