  1. How often do you watch movies? Usually if I have some free time I had watched educational and adventure movies like Harry Potter and Tomb Raider and many more. But the one have had gave me of interest are from the fable series and created one of female English writer's came from the port of Chepstow. She is an English writer behind of Harry potter and the sorcerer' stone's the movies was eventually completed the stories and in 1996 she received an offer of publication.
  2. How many British film stars and directors can you think of? Actually i am not so familiar about the movie director from British country but if I have time to look up all of this maybe in the near future for educational purposes.
  3. Like what I have said I inclined watching movies movies and Harry potter are my favorite character's movies of all time because he is an orphaned boy  and their families died at in his early ages. Please could anybody give me some feedback or comments about my grammar sentence structures and I would gladly  appreciate all your comments for my proximity examination. This coming in November. Thank to to all of you by using these of internet socialize video materials and for all the employees  of the British Council.

Hello,
Thanks for all your nice comments on the website.
I'm afraid we don't correct students' texts here, because we have many thousands of users and only a small staff. However, your English is very good and clear. You might want to work on your choice of tenses ('the one have had gave me') and problems with collocations ('proximity examination').
Best wishes,
Adam
