    I have a speaking CA coming up in a week. the first question is : What your current hobbies are (when, where, how often, with whom you do them, why you like them)

    I responded:

    Dans mon temps libre je fais beaucoup d’activities. J’aime faire du sport parce que c’et bon pour ma sante. Je joue au football, au cricket et au badminton avec mes amis tous les dimanches parce que c’est amusant. Je joue au cricket depuis longtemps depuis ma famille ont jouer tout le temps. J’aime aussi jouer a des jeux video. Je pense que les jeux video sont amusant, mais peut être mauvais pour vous.

    Is this fine can you please correct it for me and give me feedback on how to memorise btw this is only the first question there are 6 more.

    Not going to do it for you, but look at these parts in particular to find the mistakes:

    c’et bon pour ma santé
    mais peut être mauvais pour vous.

    Also, think about tenses - could you be more ambitious with tenses (for instance, using l'imparfait for things you used to do, or le futur/aller+infinitive for things you will do in the future) and increase your level of difficulty? Overall, this sounds to me like it's a literal translation from English, rather than a remotely idiomatic French piece.
