KEY:

1. My best friend´S NAME IS Anna.
(saxon genitive: owner + ´s + object and then the verb to be)

2. She is 15 YEARS old.
(The short form would be:
She is 15. Or She´s 15)

3. He IS 25 years old.
(to mention someone´s age we use the verb TO BE in English)

4. She likes GOING...
(If we use a verb after the verb LIKE, it should be used the gerund form)

5. Adam´s house
(Saxon genitive)

6. His sister is...

7. He doesn´t like...
(3rd person singular in the present simple adds an -s; instead of don´t we must use doesn´t for negative sentences)

8. She goes out with HER friends.
(Her= sus, de ella; your= tus)

9. She DOESN´T PRACTISE/DO ANY SPORT.
(Nothing is not a verb, it´s a noun and means "nada")

10. She´s INTERESTED in pets.
(to be interested in= "estar interesado en")
