    Smile correcting sentences

    Are these sentences correct:
    Children do not run off too far. I cannot keep up with you.
    Her parents could not go along with them on the trip as they were busy in the hospital.
    They were going to/in the forest.(which of them should be used)
    I ring them more often than see.
    Do you see that way it brings you(or will bring?)to a hill bend it round and keep on going.
    He could not make up his mind what to present his wife on their wedding(or on their wedding day, or on the
    wedding day).
    Her talent inspired me.
    Thank you.

    Re: correcting sentences

    1. Children do not run off too far. I cannot keep up with you. OK
    2. Her parents could not go along with them on the trip as they were busy in the hospital. OK
    3. They were going to/in the forest.(which of them should be used) It depends on context but as you presented it, "to".
    4. I ring them more often than see. "than see them " or "than I see them"
    5. Do you see the way it brings you/will bring you to a hill? Go around it/Go over it and keep on going.
    6. He could not make up his mind what to present his wife on their wedding(or on their wedding day, or on the wedding day). "on their wedding day"
    7. Her talent inspired me. OK

    I'm having trouble understanding this one. Are you giving directions?

    I'd suggest what to "give" his wife.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
