Hi, this is Tanaka from the Osaka office. I'm calling you to ask you to arrange our meeting sometime next month so as to talk about our 10th anniversary party being held on August 5. I would like you to let me know when you're available.

1. Since you are referring to a specific office, there should be a definite article before this noun.
2. When stating the month before the day, we don't use an ordinal number,
3. Since you are asking when the person is available, you should use the pronoun "you" here.
Oh, that is nice.I am available next week any afternoon you prefer.Are you an organizer of the party?

Yes. I have to plan everything of the party to make it memorable as 10 years mean a lot. So I'd like you to help me to share your ideas, cause I heard you organized of a big party last year and made it.
How about next Wednesday at 15:00? I'm coming up to your office.

Yes. I have to plan everything of the party to make it memorable as 10 years mean a lot, so I'd like you to share your ideas with me, cause I heard you organized a big party last year and made it.
How about next Wednesday at 15:00? I'm coming up to your office.

1. You shouldn't start a new sentence using a conjunction, instead, you should just continue the same sentence.
2. This is a more natural way of saying this, the way a native speaker would.
3. The verb "organized" doesn't require any prepositions, it can be directly connected to the object.
Yes, I did organize the party that was memorable.I have so many ideas.I can't wait to meet with you.Unfortunately, according to my schedule, we will be able to arrange the meeting after five in the afternoon.Can you make it then?

That is reassuring to me. This is the first time for me to arrange such a big party. Then how about five thirty on Wednesday? I'm looking forward to meeting with you.

That is reassuring to me since this is the first time for me to arrange such a big party. Then how about five thirty on Wednesday? I'm looking forward to meeting with you.

1. Try to form longer sentences by using a conjunction, since short sentences tend to sound robotic.
That would be great! By the way, have you thought about the theme for the party? What activities would you like to include? We can discuss your ideas too then I can give some suggestions to help you in planning the party.

I appropriate your help. I'm thinking about the theme of the party right now. 10 years means a lot to us, so I would like to make it magnificent and be held on a grand scale. Gorgeous food is a must. And one idea is to invite a famous singer. I need the information of catering companies and to know somebody who has connections with celebrities.
I can't wait for meeting with you soon.

I appreciate your help. I'm thinking about the theme of the party right now. 10 years mean a lot to us, so I would like to make it magnificent and grand-scale. Gorgeous food is a must, and one idea is to invite a famous singer. I need the information of catering companies and to know somebody who has connections with celebrities.
I can't wait to meet with you soon.

1. This is the correct spelling of the word.
2. Since the noun "years" is in its plural form, the verb that goes with it should also be plural.
3. This is a simpler phrasing to use here, using this as an adjective.
4. You shouldn't start a new sentence using a conjunction, instead, you should just continue the same sentence.
5. You should use an infinitive verb here after saying "can't wait".
If you have not thought of any theme yet, we can help you come up with a list. Basically, ten years is celebrated witj gifts made of steel or aluminium. Maybe we can stick with the color close to that. We will also give you the list of catering companies at our meeting. See you soon!

Sounds good. Silver color create solemn atmosphere.
It will be a great party working with you. I'm looking forward meeting soon!

It will be a great party working with you. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!

1. Since the noun "color" is in its singular form, the verb that goes with it should also be singular.
2. The singular noun "atmosphere" requires an article before it.
3. You should use the preposition "to" after "looking forward" and use the pronoun "you" as the object of the verb "meeting".
