    Default Phrases & Vocabulary Corrections

    Hi,

    My teacher corrected my composition about the film Billy Elliot and underlined what she said are mistakes but the only feedback she gave me was “vocabulary”. Can anyone please tell me why my words/phrases are not correct? I'm trying to be more advanced. The sentences are:-

    1. The first time I watched this film I cried because it seemed to me to be a moving film.



    1. This movie is a story about a child who wanted to be a male classical music dancer despite it being very untypical in his little town



    1. This movie has a lot of entertaining scenes not least when the child´s father thinks his son is going to boxing classes.


    Thank you!

    They look OK to me.

    I would have underlined 'classical music' and suggested 'ballet' instead.

    It's odd how all three sentences are number one.

    Number 1 is my favourite number Ha! Ha! Thank you very much for your answer. I did a lot of research for this composition and I was more or less sure that I had written it well.
