I am sending this letter to UK. I feel embarrassed writing to a native speaker. Could anyone please check it? I do not want to look illiterate in front of my future employer. Especially, I have certain troubles with the articles.
Thanks in advance,
I have just booked an appointment at the British Embassy in Amsterdam to obtain a visa. Unfortunately, they are very busy and the nearliest [earliest] available date is September 11. In this case, I think it is rather dangerous to buy a ticket for September 12 as I may not get the visa the same day. What do you think?
To obtain the visa I need to provide not only an invitation letter (which I already have), but also a document where it is stated that all travel and accommodation expenses will be paid by the University.
Furthermore, in my application form I need to specify the place (e.g. address) where I am going to stay. I know that you were planning to send me this information this coming Friday I look forward to receiving it.
