    is it fine, please?

    Please, let me know if I already can schedule your visit for July 1st.
    Please bear in mind that if you take too long to decide, we may not be able to find a good date anymore.


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Please set a definite date for your visit as soon as possible.
    The longer you delay your decision the slimmer the chances for us to find you a convenient date.

    Thanks.
    I think in the 1st sentence you must put the adverb "already" after the modal verb "can":
    Please, let me know if I can schedule already your visit for July 1st. or Please, let me know if I can already schedule your visit for July 1st

    The second one is fine.

    Thanks.
    None of the above sound right. "Already" is not needed. Simply delete it, and you have a good sentence. If you need an adverb, use "yet".
    Please, let me know if I can schedule your visit for July 1st yet.
    Please, let me know if I can schedule your visit yet for July 1st.

    In Canada, we can use already in this case in the following fashion:

    Please let me know if I can already schedule your visit....

    Do you delete the commas?

    I copied the sentences. Normally I wouldn't use the commas.

    Thanks.
    It seems to me that the second sentence would look much better if it read like this: Please bear in mind that if you take too long to decide, we may no longer be able to find a suitable date.

    Teachers?

    Thanks a lot.
    Are the sentences clearly written by a foreigner?
    Is there a chance of a native to write the original sentences informally?
    Thanks.
