    Short writing

    I'm doing a journal exchange with a 3rd-grader as a part of my Second Language Teaching course. I'm quite embarrassed that I'm struggling with the basic grammar and I do not wish to make any grammatical errors as this will be read before the kid's class.

    Could you check the following for errors?

    I donít have a Nintendo DS either, but I played Trauma Center on my friendís DS once and I got hooked. Iíve played Donkey Kong before, not on a Game Boy, but on a Super Nintendo. Super Nintendo is like Playstation or Xbox in the 90s, and I used to play games after games with it when I was your age. Good old times. Now Iím too busy keeping up with university and I canít do that anymore.
    My favourite cartoon, eh? I have to say Vision of Escaflowne. Itís difficult to say in one sentence what it is about, but Escaflowne is a large sword-wielding robot that can transform into a dragon-like form when it needs to fly. It was on YTV a few years ago.
    Yes, I do skate, but only occasionally. Do you skate well? I can barely balance myself. Soccer is the only sport I can say Iím good at. How about you? Are you good at any other sports?
    Thank you very much,

    All looks good except use "game after game" (single games). You should not worry too much about mistakes. The class will have a good laugh and you won't know!
