Can you please check the grammar in the following sentences? Thank you.
1) I have football training (or I go to football practice?) twice a week. We play a match against another local team on Saturdays.
2) Mickey is late for his dance class. Mrs Winter warns him to arrive on time the following time.
3) She askshim if he's got his kit for jazz dance (?).
4) What's the problem (also: what's the matter with you?)
5) I haven't got my dictionary (also: I left my dictionary at home, I forgot my dictionary at home?. Never mind. You can borrow mine.
6)I can't meet you for lunch (or at lunchtime?) today. I have a dentist's appointment. Never mind. I can meet you another time.
7) Our school is a high school with an emphasis on science. It is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and all the teachers are experienced and qualified. Our students are aged between 14 and 18 and are all hard-working (?)and motivated to study (???).
1. Use the "football practice" phrasing.
2. To avoid repetition of "time" try this: Mrs Winter warns him to arrive on time from now on.
3. Space between "asks" and "him"; what does the kit consist of. I'm not clear on the term.
4. Either one works.
5. Any of the three choices works.
6. Either choice works.
7. Comma after "technology" and delete the word "aged"; everything else is fine.
