    windy

    Please check my sentence and correct any errors.

    Today is a lot of windy that I feel very comfortable when I go outside.

    Re: windy

    Try:

    Today it is very windy, and I feel very comfortable when I go outside.

    It's a good thing it isn't raining too.

    Re: windy

    We don't say a lot of wind and even less so (if that's possible) do we say a lot of windy.

    Re: windy

    Don't say "a lot of + adjective". We use "a lot of + noun". If you are describing the weather, find the right adjective (sunny, windy, rainy, hot, cold etc) and, if appropriate, use the word "very" before it.

    Again, can you see why we ask you to write very short sentences? Your sentence contained at least three completely different errors and it's difficult for us to explain them all while keeping our explanations short and simple.
    If you had posted only "Today is a lot of windy", we would have been able to concentrate on just that short statement and given you relevant corrections.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That's grammatically correct. It's a strange statement, though. Most people dislike strong wind. It makes them uncomfortable.
