    Re: About my day

    A good way to improve your written English is to remember that we always capitalise the word "I" and all proper nouns (ie English).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "About my morning:

    My morning was good. I got up early. I went to church to pray to God. After that, I went to work at twenty minutes past seven. My co-workers arrived a few minutes after me. When he [Who? Your boss?] came, he told me that our team would have a meeting with the new manager of the company at 9:30 a.m. Nobody knew the agenda, and nobody knew what the general manager wanted to tell us. When we arrived at the meeting room, the general manager met and greeted us. After the meet-and-greet, the general manager asked us to introduce ourselves alternately[Alternately makes no sense].
    In general, my morning was good. [You don't need to repeat your first sentence.]
    Meet-and-greet is an American expression. I don't know if it's used in other places. Let's see what others say.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: About my day

    Yes, meet and greet wouldn't usually be used in UK English. We'd say "After the meeting".

    Instead of "alternately", you'd probably want to say "in turn" or "individually".
