    Question Would you like please OR Please, would you like...?

    I am writing an e-mail and I would like to check some parts before to send it.

    I am not sure about some points like:

    Would you like please accept my invitation OR have I to write Please, would you like accept my invitation instead?


    In that my document you can find a brief presentation of myself
    OR have I to write In that document you can find a my brief presentation instead?

    I' m also a learner of English language. I have heard people using mine in the context mentioned above, so in my opinion mine sounds better. Still, you should count on native speakers' comment.

    "Would you like to accept my invitation?" You don't need to say "please", because you are offering something, not asking for something.

    In that my document you can find a brief presentation of myself
    OR have I to write In that document you can find a my brief presentation instead?
    You can't say a my in English - one or the other

    In my document (attached, or wherever it is), you will find a little bit about me."
    In the document, I've written a few things about myself"
    In the document, I've written a brief presentation about/of myself"
    In the document, you can read my presentation of myself"
    "You can find out a little bit about me from what I've written in the document".
    Ciao
