    Word = Corrected word
    Word = Corrected tense

    The text should be better now, maybe not perfect, but better...

    Cheers!

    Rover, is my version of sentence #2 possible too?
    Maybe I confused "I was told" with the reported speech.

    Cheers!

    Re: Can somebody help me correct these sentences?

    Yes, your #2 is how I would have said that.
    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.
