FRENCH

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.

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