It takes as long to get home by bus as (by) train. by optional. CORRECT

- Do I get paid double on national holidays?
- 1. It may be a national holiday, but we generally refer to them as “public holidays”
- 2. "for' instead of 'on' - you are being paid double for working on that day; whereas most people are out enjoying themselves on public holidays

- I'll be fine when I've slept. CORRECT
or
I’ll be fine when I’ve had (a good) 9 hours (The context of the conversation would be such that the listener knows you are referring to sleep, but you could say, “I’ll be fine when I’ve had (a good) 9 hours sleep.”

- He makes a lot of noise when he breathes/when breathing. BOTH
-
NO.
“when he breathes”?? When does he not breathe??
The use of ‘when’ here has the sense, “At those times of the day when he breathes…”
We breathe all the time. We are more likely to say:
“His breathing is noisy.”

- If you worked during the day and I at night, I would come home when you left for work/when you would leave for work. left for work
- If you worked during the day and I worked at night, I would arrive home after you had left for work.

- Who are you making yourself pretty for? Ok
We would more likely use ‘beautiful’, because the expression is partly teasing/humorous. A bit like, “Who are you making yourself beautiful for? Got a new boyfriend, huh?”

- Don't act as if you're sick to make me feel sorry for you./so I feel sorry for you. Both
- But better:

Don’t act sick/all sick just to try to make me feel sorry for you.

God, I hate this word processor. The strike-through feature didn't work, and now, I don't have a menu to make certain words bold etc.
Hope you can understand it OK.
