The normal practice here at EF is for the poster to try to do the work and let others then offer suggestions, corrections or options, as well as answer any specific questions you might have.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
CFVG, you had a go, but sadly not too many are correct. I won't just supply the answers as that won't really help you learn but I will give you some clues.

1. incorrect verb tense.

2. you need a noun here

3. I can't think of anything to put here that should be followed by just 'small loan' instead of 'a small loan' . If this was a typo, then 'borrowed' is fine. Or 'took' or 'arranged' are alternatives.

4. correct Emotion: smile

5. Hard to know exactly what they want here. I can see why you chose repaired but you don't 'repair into X'. I think they want 'turned'. (OK I'll help you with this one as I think it is a tricky one).

6. become makes no sense here. What do you do when you move or indeed go anywhere? You go _ _ a place.

7. comfortable is an adjective yet there is no noun there for it to relate to. Incorrect.

8. I think they want the specific room name, not just 'room'. You don't stick a cooker (US American I believe is stove) just anywhere in the house, do you, it goes in the ?

9. I think if you find 8, you'll work out 9. See 4. It is not part of the room name.

10. Nothing is wrong at the moment (be). But something might go wrong in future...

Nearly. all ok except

2 - view not views

3 still not ok but I think this is a flawed question. Assume 'a small loan' follows the blank word.

6. to not go to

7. doesn't make any sense. Do you understand what 'furnish a room' means?

8. No, that is where you eat. Where do you cook?

Dear Nona,

Thanks for you help!

7. I think "furnish a room " that mean supply some things for room.

8 that mean dining-room?

thanks

CFVG
Thanks Nona,

7. I think "furnish a room" that mean "in room had somethings before". Please describe this phase for me.

8. that your mean are kitchen?

thanks for your help.

CFVG
'furnish a room'. You have an empty room and now you have to provide all the furniture for it.

8. yes, kitchen.
