1. With the word 'some", use a plural noun
for e.g.
"I need some good ideas"
2. I have given an alternate expression
3. I have used the correct word here
"Lent" is the past tense of "lend"
for e.g.
"I have lent Alex some money"
"Alex has borrowed some money from me"
4. I have added this word to correct the sentence
for e.g.
"You can go after you apologize"
"You can go after apologize" (incorrect)
Very well, then. Those are some pretty good examples. Yes, of course. Feel free to continue writing.

Okay, I'll make some short examples.
*She could speak English at five and could speak Spanish at ten. Then She is studying Chinese now, So she will be able to be a multilingual person.
*I could swim long distance when I was student, but the older I am, the longer I couldn't swim.

1. No need for a capital letter in the middle of the sentence (unless it is a proper noun)
2. No need for a capital letter after a comma

4. As you have used the word "student" (singular), use "a" to imply one
for e.g.
"He is a good child"
5. I have rephrased the sentence to correct it
Alright, then. Nice job once again. Could you write down a couple of sentences that are true for you?

When I came back my country, I was so exhausted and had a heavy luggage. I thought, ' I can't carry up my luggage anymore' when I started to climb up the stairs. After than someone said me 'May I carry your luggage?' The station staff helped me. I was so happy, especially the staff was so handsome.

1. One comes back to a place
for e.g.
"Please come back to the hostel at once"
2. "Luggage" is an uncountable noun and requires no "a" before it
for e.g.
"Did you have knowledge of this?"
"Did you have a knowledge of this?" (incorrect)
3. The sentence sounds more natural without "up"
4. I have corrected the word
I have also added a comma after this introductory phrase
5. One says something to someone
for e.g.
'Don't say anything to her'
You can also say
"After that, someone asked, "May I carry your luggage?"
6. I have added this word to improve the sentence as you are stating a reason for something
That was very nice of them. Where did you travel, by the way? Did you have any other problems during your trip?

I went to Philippines at that time.
I had many trouble in there. First, the flight was delay two hours because of typhoon. Second, I couldn't find my luggage at airport, because I was late for departure, they aren't able to carry my luggage in air plane.

1. We normally use "the" with names of countries ending with "s"
for e.g.
"The Maldives"
"The Netherlands"
2. "Many" is used with plural countable nouns
for e.g.
"They had many problems there"
With "trouble", use "a lot of"
3. The sentence sounds more natural without "in"
4. To talk about the past, use the word in its past tense
for e.g.
"He was concerned about her"
5. Something is delayed by a certain number of hours
for e.g.
"He was late by 50 minutes"

for e.g.
"That was a strong typhoon"
7. To refer to a specific place, use the definite article
for e.g.

"Are/ aren't" are used in the present tense and "were/weren't" are used for the past
for e.g.

9. This is a better preposition to use
