Dear Ana,

Thanks for agreeing to stay at my home during my trip to Japan. I will start my the trip on 19 Jan January 19 and will be gone for a week. (I am starting the week long trip on January 19.) Present continuous tense is preferred here. Ask in the comments box if you wish to discuss more. 

Allow me to give me you instructions about things around the house.

All the cleaning equipment are is at store room in the house backyard. For cleaning, you have to plug in the vacuum at bottom right socket in the living room. Food related equipment is in the kitchen, except the barbeque. You can find it in the backyard and please feel free to use it for making delicious pizzas. The washing machine is in the downstairs room. There is an outlet for cold and hot water already attach to the machine. The dryer is setup for the cotton cloth, please adjust the setting according to your need.

At this time of the summer in the Delhi, there is are a lot of attractions. (Rephrase: During summers Delhi has a lot of attractions.) You must visit the India Gate, the evening will be the best time of visit. You should also check out the President House. It has great paintings and laser show. I am sure you will love it.

If you have any problems in using any types of equipment around the house, please ring me on the number I have kept on the bridge. See you, when I am back from the trip.

You seem to have some problem with auxiliary verbs such as is, are. With a better restructuring of sentences, you can score well.

Good Luck!
