My apologies, but I am not available for the whole week of June 26. Could you please give me some time-slots for the following week?

My apologies, but I am not available for the whole week of June 26. Could you please propose some time-slots for the following week?

Could you please tell me which one between the above sentences is correct? Is my usage of the word 'time-slots' correct?

    I agree (although this answer could be improved if you fleshed it out some more). I might say, “Could you please propose some times for the following week?”, or, “Do you have any time-slots for the following week?” but not “Could you propose some time-slots?” It’s a bit hard to explain why, but that explanation would likely be very helpful for the leaners.

  • It seems because of the core sense of verb 'propose', to intend to do something.
