I started at 7.30am until 9am (past)

To take my son to the airport. You should say 'take someone to + place'. This means I accompanied him to the airport.

During the summer it's too hot. Use 'much' before uncountable nouns, not before adjectives.

There isn’t too much of a breeze at our beach or ot isn’t too breezy at our beach or our beach isn’t to breezy. Breeze is a noun. Breezy is an adjective.

Another colleague from Israel. Another is with singular nouns and other is with plural nouns.

Addicted to 'Breaking Bad'. Addicted to is an example of a collocation. You are tested on various collocations in the exam and so it is good to revise them beforehand. A good FCE coursebook will provide you with lots of these examples and I also go through some common ones in my FCE Use of English video course.

How long was the trip?

I  flew to Palermo. The verb forms are: Fly, flew, flown.

I enjoyed it very much. Don't use 'well' to describe a noun, you can 'very much' instead. 'Very much' means 'a lot'.

Some friends of his. I talk about this more in Biggest Mistakes At B2 First 12.

I prefer not to visit other places.

It's rich in history.

A lot of structures that were built in the Baroque style.

You don’t have to buy anything. 

It's tough for me to understand well. Tough means difficult. You can say tough or difficult for me to...

I don't remember what I was saying.
