See above.Hi. I'd like to know from native speakers if the following sentences are OK.
the2012 is the year (no comma required) in which the European Football Championship, Euro 2012, takes place.
2) I would really like to go to London to see the competition. If I had 1200 euros I would buy
the tickettickets for my family (semi-colon not appropriate here) but I would also need alsomoney for theplane tickets. so,I should havewould need a lot of money, which is not my caseI don't have.
3) It’s two years since I last went to the mountains because I had to take part in swimming competitions.
Grammatically it's fine but it doesn't make a lot of sense. Surely you didn't have to take part in a swimming competition every day!
4) it’s two years since my family, my relatives and I last went
toon a skiing holiday.
What difference do you see between "my family" and "my relatives"?
5) Summer is my favourite time of [the] year because I have no school.
6) I like diving and
goinghunting octopus with my uncle, using a harpoon. I also like moving from tree to tree, clambering and walking along rope bridges and going up rope ladders, which are made of ropes andwhich link trees in the acrobatic adventure parks.
The sentence was very long and parts of it which were unconnected were linked together.
While I skiI like singing while I ski. I sometimes do it whenbecause I get scared becauseof the people who ski at high speed, and of the ravines into which I maymight fall if they drag me to the groundknock me over.
This is a rather strange sentence again. I'm not sure how singing helps you to avoid (or to not be frightened of) fast skiers, or of being knocked into a deep ravine.
