  • English -

    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.
