    2.I live in a small, quiet, lovely town in the South of England.

    3.I didn’t see Fiona since last Wednesday.

    4.I ate an enormous, big dinner.

    5.Will we go, then?

    6.If there are less than 6 people, we’ll have to cancel the course.

    7.No, don’t bother doing it. I have done it already.

    8.I’m not sure red suits me.

    I think you have to say "correct my grammar" and not say "fix my grammar"

    1.You donít take sugar in your coffee, do you?

    2.I live in a small, quiet, lovely town in the South of England.
    Adjective order- lovely should come first.

    3.I didnít see Fiona since last Wednesday.
    Tense- haven't seen

    4.I ate an enormous, big dinner.
    Repetition- use one of these adjectives

    5.Will we go, then?
    Shall we

    6.If there are less than 6 people, weíll have to cancel the course.
    fewer

    7.No, donít bother doing it. I have done it already. You could use a semi-colon instead of a full-stop)

    8.Iím not sure red suits me.

    9.What about a pizza, then?

    10.Whenever I was crossing the road yesterday, I was nearly knocked down by a bus.
    Unless this happened many times, it should be 'when'
