Your English is fine, but just FYI, calling people you don't know 'dear' isn't seen an expression of affection or respect in the UK, in fact it's seen as the opposite by most. So just a heads up really, best not to use it unless it actually is on a letter with a name after it!

HTH, good luck with your move.
