Yes, I received this type of email.

I received some emails like this one to confirm an appointment when I was finding a new job. These were interview invitation emails. After received them, I had to reply to them to confirm the interview.

No. In generally After we take an appointment, it comes e mail regarding the appointment.

I don't remember receiving the confirmation email for my booking. I also haven't written it.However, I think that I have to write a confirmation email etc. when I start working.I read this paragraph today and it was very helpful.I have a business communication class in a university class and take that class.The lesson is useful, but it is very difficult.It is very difficult to use English that is not rude to the other party. For example, why is it more polite to use would rather than will when making a request? Etc.
Although I can't explain well in my native language, I'm taking lessons because I find it difficult in English. However, if I were to work abroad, it would have to be done naturally.I felt like studying everyday.
Reservation confirmation e-mails such as this one will make the recipient feel good by paying careful attention.I think that writing a polite sentence will facilitate communication with the other party and will be more trusted. When I become a member of society, I pay close attention to the email text.

Dear Ms.Ana

First, thank you for the invitation to the interview.
I'm writing to confirm that I will be there on a fixed date and time.
I would like to know if I should bring degree and Letters motivation from my previous employers.
I'm look forward to meeting you
Best regard.

I've written tons of emails but honestly don't remember if I wrote something like an appointment. I have a little bit of different character of work. Most of my emails addressed to my colleagues or contractors.

In task 2 you have Ms + Ibrahim, in this case Ibrahim is a surname, right? Because I knew Ibrahim as a first name and that troubled me, because I knew it as a male name. Thanks :)

Hello Lau Goldberg

Yes, that is correct – 'Ibrahim' is her surname here.

All the best
