    how to correct these sentences?

    1. I'm studying at the English school (meaning: in the school of English, so is this sentence ok?)
    2.When I have free time I go swimming, go to theatre or cinema and go to a night club-dancing
    3.this year is different but interesting for me.
    4.In July I finish studies
    5.My boss goes on holiday. He takes a rest in Egypt (tense?)
    6.My son is 13, he needs me every day. Sometimes I think that every hour
    7.Next weekend all my family goes at my friend's house in the mountains
    8.I live in...with my girlfriend quite near the centre, but there are parks.
    9.We-I and my wife often go for a walk on Paris' street.

    Thanks!!!1

    1 I would say 'an English school' unless you have already mentioned the school.
    2- I would delete 'dancing' or say 'go dancing in a night club'
    4 'my studies'
    5 Impossible to know the tense without knowing if he's on holiday now, was or will be.
    6 The prggressive would be better there
    8 my wife and I
