Thinking Spaina) My brother gave a nice story away in his speech.
b) We get into Barcelona in our car.
c) Hundreds of cats catch mouses today.
a) Do you mean "My brother told a nice story in his speech"?

b) I'm not sure what you mean with this sentence, but here are two suggestions:

We can get to Barcelona by car.

We are going to Barcelona in our car.

c) The plural of mouse is mice:

Hundreds of cats will catch mice today. (action not yet completed)

Hundreds of cats caught mice today. (past--has already happened)

Than you very much for you correction.Emotion: smile

a) this sentence is very strage since as I believe 'give ... away' means 'reveal'

b) this sentence must contain the verb 'get into'

c) thanks for this one.
You may say one of the following:
" He gave a way his secret in his speech". - Gave away one's secret- is an idiomatic expression meaning, to share or reveal secretive ionformation.

" He told a reavling story in his speech".

"We are getting into our car to Barcelona ".
Thank you so much for you helpful infomation.

Why I can't say:

We got into our car to Barcelona.

Thanks
