Hello again!
This is an example of a composition which one of you wrote (I've made very few changes). You can see it's not so difficult, you can do something like this. The only thing you must do is control basic mistakes from previous levels and use new structures and vocabulary.
  • you must always use the subject
  • normal sentence order is: SUBJECT + VERB + OBJECT + COMPLEMENTS
  • adjectives go BEFORE nouns: There's a wonderful church and they DO NOT have plural (I saw three tall men)
  • don't forget the final -s in plurals and for the 3rd person singular in the Present Simple
  • we only use capital letters at the beginning of sentences, with "I", days of the week, months, names of people/places...
  • avoid repetitions using pronouns: I live in Valleseco, it's a nice small town
  • and please... DO NOT MAKE MISTAKES FROM NB1 (like+ing, a/an, present and past tenses, pronouns...)
  • revise your spelling

Look at these tables to see the different quantifiers we use in English:

Uncountable nouns
Countable nous
HOW MUCH water do you drink? HOW MANY people were there?

A LITTLE (and that's OK, I don't need more) 
A FEW (and that was enough)

I drink LITTLE water (not enough, I think I should drink more) There were FEW people (not enough, e.g. the party was boring)

I drink ENOUGH water (sufficient) There were ENOUGH people (sufficient, just the right number) I'm tall ENOUGH to play basketball
I don't drink MUCH water (negative sentence) There weren't MANY people (negative sentence)

I drink A LOT OF water There were A LOT OF people He eats A LOT.
I drink TOO MUCH water (more than necessary) There were TOO MANY people (more than necessary) I'm TOO tired I'm going to bed.

To practise a little more, please visit tolearnenglish (lots of links here), grammar.ccc or esl-lounge. For longer sentences go to grammarbank.

unit 5- those cities...

In unit 5B we'll be looking at the superlative adjectives and we'll learn how to write and speak about a city or town.
This is an amazing video on the ten most beatiful cities on earth.

Do you agree?
