    I got a job and I want to say thank you!!

    Dear Friends,

    Today I just met two professors of the stuff of my future job. I would like to send an email to the professor in charge because since the first moment we have been emailing each other. I think it will be good if a write an email and say thank you.

    I wrote the next sentences, please help me to correct any grammatical mistake or inadequate expression.

    Dear Prof. :

    Thank you very much for the pleasant time I had this afternoon meeting both of you. Through our conversation, I have a much clearer understanding about the opening of French classes at Luterian Institute from next year. Truly I am very delighted and excited about teaching French at Luterian Institute; I appreciate your time to show me the classrooms because after seeing them I am very much motivated because I saw the classrooms where in a near future I will be teaching French. Besides, I think the classrooms are very well equipment and very much modern; I am looking to use these advantageous resources in my French classes.
    I also very much appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge on anthropological research and experience with me.

    Sincerely,

    The last sentence ("I very much appreciate....") could be better, but it is, I suppose, adequate. Certainly, it is not possible to share experience. (We can tell people about our experiences, but we cannot share them.)

    Dear friend,

    Thank you very much for your advise, I tried to improve my letter and wrote this, what do you think?

    Dear Prof.

    Thank you very much for the pleasant time I had yesterday meeting you both. I am really delighted and excited about teaching French, and I appreciate the time you spent showing me the classrooms. After seeing them I am very motivated because that is where I will be teaching French in a near future. Besides, I think the classrooms are very well equipped and modern; I am looking forward to using these advanced resources in my French classes.
    I also appreciate very much your willingness to share information about your research work and the conferences at AJTP Association and JIWS. I am very much interested and my husband too, we both will try to attend the conference this weekend.

    Sincerely,

    Note:
    You could say also instead of too in the next to last sentence.
