Teacher, are there errors in these sentences? Thank you
I would like to plan a trip to Manila in June of this year to visit my aged aunt who is 85 years old and also my good friends as I have not seen them for about four years. My trip dates are from June 10 to 21.
The first sentence needs a comma after 'aunt' and one after 'old'. I would also have a comma after 'friends'.
Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
I don't think you need to say "aged" and "who is 85 years old".
Although your sentences were OK, they could be tidied up and shortened a little. Here is my suggestion:
I would like to go to Manila in June this year to visit my 85-year-old aunt, and some good friends who I have not seen for four years. My planned trip dates are June 10th to 21st.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
A better title, thomas, would have been I would like to go to Manila.
