    are these sentences right?

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if you could help me with these sentences. Are they right?

    During the year, we have wonderful festivals in my city: bull races, a procession in Easter, a city fair in November, and flamenco dancing.

    I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world

    I climbed up into the loft using a ladder

    Their friends began to come down with the ladder very quietly (they were in the loft)

    When the film was finished, I went home to have dinner

    The busiest resorts in Catalunya are "lloret de Mar" and "Platja d'Aro". "Lloret de Mar" has more hotels than anywhere else on the Catalan coast

    There are a lot of other typical dances (as/like?) "Sevillanas" and "Sardanes"

    Thanks

    All need periods at the end. All are OK except:


    Their friends began to come down the ladder very quietly (they were in the loft).

    I would use "such as" in your last sentence.

    Thank you for your speedy replies. I really appreciate your help

    Could you please give me an alternative for the wrong one? I would like to say that their friends came down from the loft very quietly with the help of a ladder

    Thanks
