    Post have already been finalised/ have already done

    1- I hope that the changes to the role that I have been interviewed for have already been done and looking forward to the next step of the process.

    2- I am writing to you check whether the changes to the role that I have been interviewed for have already been finalised and wonder if I can know that changes and to move forward to the next steps of the process.

    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.

    Thanks Charlie. I saw your kind suggestion.

    I would like to edit the above paragraph as follows:


    - I am writing to check whether the changes to the role that I interviewed for are finalised. If yes, Appreciate it if you could let me know what they are so we can move forward to the next steps of the process.

    Better!

    Here's a question for the other advisors here. Which of these do you prefer?:

    - I would appreciate you letting me know

    Re: have already been finalised/ have already done

    The first one. I don't know why. It's my instinct response to your question. By the way, I am not an advisor here.
    Three passions have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.

    It might depend on just how formal I wanted to be. If I were contacting a prospective employer, for example, I'd use the second. In most other circumstances, I'd use either the first or I'd say "I would/I'd appreciate it if you could/would let me know [asap]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
