自然な表現

Excuse me? What year is it today? I came from the future to save a woman. She will childbirth a savior. If I can't save her,     mankind will be destroyed. Where is her house?

1. You need to add a verb to this sentence.
2. Mankind is specific enough, there is only one. No need to use a definite article here.
Do you mind telling me the name of the woman first? And, how will you describe this person you're looking for?

I have a photo, so I only know her name and her appearances. Her name is Kona Sarah. This is her photo. I think asking for a police officer is the best way when it comes to finding her.
I wonder if they think of me as a crazy person?

1. We usually use this noun in singular.
2. "To ask for" is used to express your need to have something. "To ask someone" is used to direct a question to someone.
Okay, sure. I have heard about her. I think she lives on 28 Green Street. Just turn left and walk for 2 blocks, you will see it. Will her child play an important role in a war that is to come?

Thank you very much. You are also a savior of the world. Her son is going to become a leder of resistance military against AI robot. In the future, robots have their mind and killing all the people. It's like a movie, but this is reality.

1. Correct spelling.
2. Use a definite article ("the") with specific nouns.
3. Use plural whenever you talk about something in general.
4. I added the auxiliary verb here for better sentence flow.
Oh, okay. That is a concerning future ahead of us. Will the AI robots be created by companies such as Skynet? We should not trust them.

Yes, they were created by Skynet. Once they have their will, they think that being commanded by human is ridiculous. As a result, they try to destroy us. We shouldn't have created them. Ah, I spent much time talking to you. Come with me, if you want to live.

1. Use plural whenever you talk about something in general.
Okay, sure. I will follow you. I want to be as safe as possible. Will there be Android robots following us later?

Yes, maybe he is already around here. According to my boss, the android robot riding a big motorcycle and chasing his target. However, it's ok. He doesn't have motorcycle's license in the United States. I'll call a police.

1. The auxiliary verb is missing here.
2. Use an indefinite article ("a") with countable singular nouns.
3. Use "the" to refer to particular things and to be more specific.

Amazing job! If you have any further questions, consult your Speaking lesson teacher. Enjoy your lesson!
