The use of tye word "get" in nearly every sentence I have read rather than "have" is irks0me to me.

If I "get" an opportunity..... 1. is that more my issue in that American English accepts "get" as an acceptable replacement for "have" in a sentence? 2. Also, the "very much" phrase is often applicable but feels too much or undue or for me when I want to indicate this, I find myself always ticking the THESAURUS app trying to find a synonym or just omitting it from text.

I am new to this site, so hoping it is an interesting, intelligent forum rather than an abrupt platform.

American English - Grammar, Writing - so forth has over 300 books dedicated to the subject. In my opinion, this is an indisputable indication to the complicated and static nature of the language. What are your thoughts on my comments?

No, It should read more like this:

 

Dear Sir,
   Thank you very much for the valuable time which you gave me today. It was pleasure to meet with you. If I get an opportunity to work with your organisation, I will do my best to prove myself

 

However, I'm not a fan of the last sentence.

Pleasure to meet you. No 'with'. Prepositional combo error here. Good job on everything else!

The continuing care retirement community CCRC has become one alternative to the impending increase in our elderly population according to stella espinoza professor of gerontology at the university of connecticut. Nursing homes are no longer the answer to this social need she said. They’re simply too costly for todays senior-citizens she added. CCRC's normally require a tremendous down payment to buy into a living unit then they require a considerable monthly "maintenance fee". This large initial investment together with the continuing high price of socalled maintenance means that many americans will be excluded from the CCRC of their choice. "It’s a shame that getting old has to be so expensive" said espinoza there are three things involved here affordability convenience and human dignity.

Heck no! You "gave me" should replace the error. Don't use an ampersand, and please replace "sat with you" to "meet with you". Myself is actually one word. And "level best"? Really?
