    Can someone tell me what the grammar problems here?

    My best experience visit to USA not speaking good english
    My free time I like walking. What I like about the USA is there many jobs.
    Some differences between american culture and mine culture is the food.
    I like every american movies.


    Obviously the student read it wrong, I guess she was confused with worse instead of best.

    Okay I want to say the main problem here is pronouns. For example should be 'that there (are) many jobs'
    Just trying to figure out a theme in error here.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum, pandapple.

    There are so many mistakes in that that I don't think you can find a 'theme in error'. The main problem is not pronouns (and subordinating 'that' is not a pronoun); it's that the learner has been given a task that is beyond their ability.

    Re: Can someone tell me what the grammar problems here?

    I agree that there is no theme in grammatical error.

    But I would say that the most obvious issue here is a lack of coherence. The text seem to consist of five unconnected sentences.

    What was the learner's task exactly?
