Reply to an interview invitation

This is a discussion thread · 5 replies
Hi!

A company has sent me the following email to arrange a telephone interview with me. I've written the answer but I'd be really grateful if someone could check it. I find that my answer is too abrupt and I believe that what they want with this email is to check my English. I don't want to sound pompous either.
Thanks a lot for your help!

It looks fine.
For the salutation I would say Dear Sir or Madam:
Typically it is one person receiving your response, so singular is better.
If you know who it is, use their name.
