  1. 1) Along the wall in front of the left window there is a book closet (correction: book shelf) If you are going to use "bookshelf" in that sentence (and it IS the correct word!), then be sure to spell it as one word. I have a question about the first nine words, though. If there is a wall in front of a window, isn't the window obscured? Where is the bookshelf? Under the window? Left of the window? Where?

    2)What distance do you walk to school every day? OR How far do you walk to school every day? The second sentence is better, smoother.

    3) They have a 15-minute break. So have we. (or So do we) Which form is correct "have" or "do"? Since you have used "have" in the first sentence, then "have is correct to use in the second sentence.

    4) I arrive at home OR I arrive home Either one works; I prefer the second.

    5) I listen to the lessons OR I listen to my teachers' explanations? Either one works fine.

    6) I get/take/catch the bus home (Are they all possible?) I arrive at the bus terminal at 7 o'clock. Any of those verbs are fine, yes.
