I still have a few doubts, Writeacher.
These are my last sentences. I really hope you can check them!!


1) I’ve just been on holiday to France with my family. (It means you have just come back?) I’ve just gone on holiday with my family. (I'm still there??)
2) My nephews did some pirates’ games.
3) We flew back = we travelled back by air??
During ("in"/"over"are mistakes?) my Christmas holiday
4) Sorry we have been out of touch (is "with each other" necessary??)
5) On Christmas Eve I played some party games with my cousins.
We toasted the New Year BUT we drank a toast to the New Year.
6) Yesterday was my sister’s birthday. I gave her a CD player and she was very happy with my present. How are things with you? I hope they are good (??).
7) I’ll wait for your answer. (Can you finish a letter this way?) I can't wait to receive your next email.
8) I got a very good mark in Maths. I did a lot of nice experiences (??) when I was on holiday. I'm writing to tell you my experiences of the (?) last month.

    1. You can say "I just arrived home from being on holiday in France with my family.
    2. My nephews did some Pirate games.
    3. We flew back. (it is fine)
    4. Its good as is.
    5. On Christmas Eve I played some party games with my cousins and we proposed a toast to the New Year.
    6. Use quotations and speaker changes to signify who is talking.
    7. Go with the second choice. But you can use either really.
    8. Take the S off of math. I got a very good mark in my Math class.
    I had a lot of nice experiences when I was on holiday.
    I'm writing to tell what all has happened within the last month.

    2) My nephews played some pirate games.

    3) We flew back = we travelled back by air?? yes

    During ("in"/"over"are mistakes?) my Christmas holiday "during" and "over" are OK, but not "in"

    4) Sorry we have been out of touch (is "with each other" necessary??) no, it's not necessary

    5) On Christmas Eve, I played some party games with my cousins.

    We toasted the New Year BUT we drank a toast to the New Year. both are OK

    6) Yesterday was my sister’s birthday. I gave her a CD player, and she was very happy with the present. How are things with you? I hope they are good.

    7) I’ll wait for your answer. (Can you finish a letter this way?) I can't wait to receive your next email. These are OK. It might be better, though, to write "I look forward to your reply."

    8) I got a very good mark in Maths. I had a lot of nice experiences when I was on holiday. I'm writing to tell you my experiences of the last month.
