  3. You shouldn't lie. You should always say the true.
  4. Richard works in the informatic department.
  5. Now he's in charge of maintenance. He used to working in a different area.
  6. I'm afraid I'm not agree with you.
  7. I have a new about Sarah - she's going to get married.
  8. How many were here on Monday? We were three.
  9. It's inpolite to ask people how much they earn.
  10. People say that the Scots are mean but that is just a topic.
  11. Both of my fathers were born in Madrid.
  12. The trip to Bilbao by car takes about 4 hours.
  13. I don't like my actual job. I preferred my old one.
  14. People hasn't much time to study languages.

Hi Inés,

I've just noticed that my previous reply has disappeared. I'll have to do it all over again :-(

But it'll have to wait until tomorrow - I'm too tired now :-)
