    Not a teacher

    They all seem okay. Consider also: The plane took off at the expected time.

    Spelling corrections: My apartment was broken into.
    My dog goes for you

    Also for "take off" -- My sister is coming to town and I'm going to take off a couple days from work.
    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.
