Solutions

I love kitesurfing

The goalkeeper made 2 big mistakes - we say 'to make a mistake' in English

She has other students

When I was driving I received a phone call

It's correct to say he has been to X

It's very dangerous - 'danger' is a noun. 'Dangerous' is the adjective. We need to use the adjective here to describe 'it'. 

This has improved in Italy - we should use the present perfect simple here.

Some weeks ago my son went to Nuremburg to visit a beer factory - because we say when he went, we should use the past simple.

My son’s school must do marketing for this company - Don’t use ‘to’ after modal verbs: must, can, could etc.

My friend George who lives in Italy
