    Sentences Feb 7

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Can you please book me to meet with him on Thursday, February 10th.

    2. Can you please schedule a meeting for me to meet with him on Thursday, February 10th?

    3. Please let me know if something needs to be done on priority.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    As for sentence #1, you might try saying:
    Can you please arrange for me to meet with him on Thursday, February 10th?

    engee30,

    Thanks. I am assuming #2 and 3 are fine for your ear.

    Well, the second sentence sounds fine to my non-native ear, but I can't say the same of the third one - there's something wrong with it.
