    Question A question!

    Hello!

    I will appreciate if someone can tell me if it is right to write following sentences in an email to let a recruiter know about another possible opportunity?

    "As I told you last time we spoke, I also have an offer from a pharmacoepidemiology group at the hospital. During a meeting that I had with them to talk about mutual interests, I mentioned about the possibility of a postdoctoral position in your group and they have been pretty flexible providing me more time until August to make the final decision. "

    Thanks so much!
    A.

During a meeting that I had with them to talk about mutual interests, I mentioned about the possibility of a postdoctoral position in your group and they have been pretty quite flexible, providing me with more time (until August) to make the my final decision.

    Thanks so much!

    Please see my suggested revisions to your post. Note that we do not say "to mention about​" - we simply say "to mention" and follow it with what was mentioned.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
