    You forgot to attach your text. People would be happy to help you improve it, but the way you've asked for help makes it seem as though you were expecting us to write an essay for you.

    Hey, I'm from France so I'd be happy to help.

    Corrections:
    "D'habitude avec ma famille, je vais a Dubai pendant deux semaines chaque été. Nous y allons car nous trouvons le lieu pittoresque et ensoleillé. J'ai découvert à Dubai une variété de nouvelles cultures. Ma famille et moi gardons des souvenirs inoubliables (not sure what you wanted to say with "comme les beaux")

    I changed some formulations but modify at your will. Most of the times French does not directly translate from English, the pour vs pendant is a good example. Remember when you have a duration always put pendant. If it has to be longer add for example a specific activity you did in Dubai.
    Hope this helped!

    I've given it a go via PMIt is repetitive and isn't that impressive. So I suggested a few tense variations and your last sentence I replaced with a clause.
    I hope it makes sense and helps you.
    Ask if it is unclear/you dont understand etc.!

    I agree with the corrections made above

    So at the moment you have a little introduction of where you normally go, but now you need to talk about a past holiday. Therefore you could talk about a trip to Dubai e.g. Par exemple, quand j'y suis allé l’année dernière, ma mère et moi avons visité beaucoup de musées et nous les avons trouvé très intéressantes.... or you could talk about a holiday in which you visited somewhere different e.g. Par contre, il y a deux ans, mes amis et moi sommes alles au Portugal, c'était un expérience extraordinaire......

    Either way, make sure you're detailed describing what you did, whether you enjoyed it, what you would do if you returned etc. and feel free to make things up if you need more to write about. Examiners aren't going to check so it really doesn't matter. This is especially useful for using negatives in your assessment if you don't experience anything on actual holidays (e.g. Unfortunately I was ill on Wednesday so I couldn't go to the beach / Malheruesment, j'étais malade mercredi donc je n'ai pu pas aller à la plage)

    I hope my advice as well as the others advice helps
