    any errors

    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'.

    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 - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A better title, thomas, would have been I would like to go to Manila.
