    Je voulais faire du ski = i wanted to go skiing

    j'avais l'intention de faire du ski mais = i was going to go skiing but

    "rester" takes etre, so instead of saying "j'ai restée", which uses avoir you have to say "je suis restée". And I think it's dans un grand hotel.

    o yea u can tell im not concentrating, thanks

    Isn't the second conditional perfect? Pluperfect is had done something, eg. j'avais mangé.

    J’ai appris a faire du ski, j’adore faire du ski dans la montagne.


    Je voulais faire du snowboarding avec mon frere mais mes parents etait alles au restaurant pour dejeauner, alors j’ai joue aux cartes avec mon frere, si seulement ils etaient alles plus tot.


    L’annee prochain je vais aller en Suisse avec ma famille ou on fera du ski et mon frere jouera au foot. Si je suis heureux j’irai en Espagne avec me copines j’irais a la plage ou on jouait au foot

    mais mes parents etait alles
    mes parents sont allés - as it's a completed action, i presume, so should be in the perfect tense

    (Original post by NeoTheOne)
    si seulement ils etaient alles plus tot
    si seulement ils y etaient allés plus tot - shows off pronouns

    (Original post by NeoTheOne)
    dejeauner
    dejeuner


    (Original post by NeoTheOne)
    Si je suis heureux j’irai en Espagne avec me copines
    "j'irai en Espagne" should probably be in the conditional to go with the rest of the sentence, as you say, "j’irais a la plage ou on jouait au foot"


    If the ou means where, it needs an accent on the u.


    That's all I can see for the moment, hope it's right. My head's mashed and I'm very tired. So sorry if anything I've said is a load of rubbish.
