Can anyone spot any problems with this piece of text? Im looking for spelling mistakes, accents, adjectives and agreement and any problems with verbs. Thanks!!

Mon stage en enterprise
il y a trois mois j'ai fait un stage dans une maison de retraite, à Wadebridge. J'y ai passè deux semaines. J'ai pris le car au collège et puis je suis alleè en ville à pied. J'y suis arrivèe vers 9h00, et j'ai fini à 15h00 heures à peu près.

Il fallait aider mes collègues preparè les petit dèejeuner, et serveuse les clients chaque matin. J'ai debarassè la table, fait la vaisselle et nettoyè salle à manger tous les jours. J'ai jouè lotto une par semaine et domino tous les jours.

Mes collegues aidèr moi. Il's ètaient gentil et marrant toujours. Ma patron ètait calme, habile et sympathique. Les clients ètaient intelligientes, bavardes et contentes.

J'ai trouve mon stage en enterprise passionnant, interessante, agrèable et instructif, parce qu'il y avait toujours quelque chose pour faire.

Je sais que je vais faire ce travail après parce que j'aime avoir beaucoup de contacts humains et aider les gens.

Mon stage en enterprise

Il fallait aider mes collègues preparè (++ à preparer) les((con = le) petit dèejeuner,(ort = déjeuner) et serveuse(** et à servir) les(** + aux) clients chaque matin. J'ai debarassè(ort = débarrassé) la table, (+ j'ai) fait la vaisselle et (+ j'ai) nettoyè (+ la) salle à manger tous les jours. J'ai jouè (ort = joué = not accent grave but aigu) (+ au) lotto une par (MD = here I'm not sure what you are trying to say; sometimes if you don't provide the English, it's impossible to know exactly what you need.) semaine et (+ au) domino tous les jours.

Mes collegues (AA) aidèr moi.(** + m'aidaient) Il's(ort = Ils) ètaient(ort = é not è) gentil(con = remember if the noun is plural, so are the modifying adjectives.) et marrant (con = pl) toujours.(CP = most adverbs follow the conjugated verb = Ils 'étaient toujours...)

Les clients(gen = male or female? either "clients" + change the adjectives OR "clientes" + leave the adjectives) ètaient intelligientes,(ort) bavardes et contentes.

J'ai trouve mon stage en enterprise passionnant, interessante,(ort & gen = intéressant) agrèable(ort = é) et instructif, parce qu'il y avait toujours quelque chose pour(** + à) faire.

Je sais que je vais faire ce travail après(** + plus tard) parce que j'aime avoir beaucoup de contacts humains et aider les gens.
