    Hey Franco! Pretty big question you have here, so here's the answers. If I skip the question, that means the sentence is correct, and the answer is yes to whatever question you asked.
    1) all land is not an alternative, it would be "all lands". The question, however, is correct.
    4) Yes to all questions, but here's one sentence that should be written as such: "It became the school and meeting place for the uneducated."
    5) You can use "like", but 'such as' sounds better, and is a better-educated choice.
    6) Try not to use the word "that". It can usually be removed without changing the meaning.
    7) Middle of the 12th century sounds best, both work though. The serpent slithered forward angrily is the correct way.
    8) I'm sorry but this sentence doesn't make much sense. It's like saying "The boy was fat and not fat". It contradicts itself.
    9) The prepositions are correct.

    Pretty good job overall, I'm impressed! It looks as though you really put a sincere effort.

    Could you please tell me how to say "all in all" in French. It snowed a bit more during the night but all in all it's not very much. Il a neigé un peu plus pendant la nuit mais "all in all" il n'est pas beaucoup. Thank you so much!
