    Default Does this sound grammatically correct?

    Thank you Sandi for finding the best bus rate for us. Below is the proposed schedule for both meeting:

    First Meeting:
    Bus pickup at 7:00 am at the Renaissance Austin Hotel - Lobby
    The meeting will end at 4:30 pm

    Second Meeting:
    Bus pickup at 7:30 am at the Renaissance Austin Hotel –Lobby
    The meeting will end at 5:00 pm

    You have my credit card on file to authorize the charge and thank you again for coordinating the bus services

    Best,
    Naima

    Default Re: Does this sound grammatically correct?

    I would place a comma before and after "Sandi". The last word in the first sentence should be plural "meetings".

    The second lines under the meeting arrangements should end with periods/full stops. There should be a space before the second use of "Lobby".

    I would make two sentences from the last sentence: You have my credit card on file to authorize the charge. Thank you again for coordinating the bus services. (notice the period/full stop)

    Will it sound better if we replace "the meeting will end at 5:00" with "the meeting will have ended by 5:00"?

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not for me. And the meaning is not the same. When something ends by a certain time, it can end at that time or before that time.
