    What is wrong with this sentence? "I'd like some informations about your courses."

    We rarely use "information" as a plural. It is mostly a non-count noun.

    Hi Shariyf, and welcome to the forums.

    First, thank you for using proper punctuation and capitalization. And thank you for asking your question clearly.

    Next time, though, please give your thread a title that tells us about your question, instead of just calling it "Question." Perhaps "I'd like some informations" would have been a good title.

    If everyone named their thread "Question" you can imagine how confusing the forum would be.
    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.
