Imagine a situation where you've been informed by Mr. Rentarou that on Wednesday you will have an interview with Ms. Suzuki. Then, you've decided to confirm the information directly to Ms. Suzuki.
I've come up with 2 sentences
I learned that in Japanese, they prefer using a passive voice "I have been told by Mr. Rentarou ~" rather than "Mr. Rentarou told me ~". In this situation is the passive voice preferred?
Lastly, I am confused that sometimes が or けど doesn't always translate as "but", rather it implies something else depending on the context. This is why the first sentence "I've been told by Mr. Rentarou, but on Wednesday I will have an interview (with you)," sounds weird to me. Is my correction (the second sentence) better?
Please fix if I used the wrong vocabulary for the phrases.
