Mistakes

Solutions

Black coffee is not good for my health. 'Healthy' is an adjective in English. We need to use the noun 'health'  in this sentence. Here are some more examples: running is good for my health. Running is healthy for me. Fruit is good for my health. Fruit is healthy.

When can I arrive? or when did you arrive? In questions the auxiliary verb normally goes before the subject.

I don't like to be in the sun for  a long time.

I went to the beach. If it's just one beach, we should use an article before it.

The sea was frightening. I was frightened by the sea. In English, adjectives which end -ed show how something/somebody feels. E.g. I am worried. Whereas adjectives which end -ing - describe the things which CREATE the feeling, For example: The film was boring, I was bored by the film. This book is interesting. I am interested by the book.

The weather in Sochi changes often.
