    Are these sentences right?

    My friend will be in Beijing in March of this year visiting his son. I plan to take three days (March 3, 4 and 7) off to visit him. I am supposed to work Wednesday to Friday of each week. Can I switch and work Monday to Wednesday (February 29 to March 2) instead of March 2 to 4 (Wednesday to Friday)? I hope you will approve my request.

    Re: switch

    They're OK though I would use "I would like to take three days off ..."

    If you say "I plan to take three days ...", it doesn't suggest that you are asking for permission. However, the rest of your piece makes it clear that you are asking for permission.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
