Can you find 11 things that need fixing?

sorry Flavia, but also I don’t know how to use it.  I-Mobile 2100 it’s a hard cell phone, only few people know how to use it.  Try calling the store that sold you.  I think they help you.

I worked on this with students in high school and we found even more than 11 mistakes! We BEAT the TEACHER!!  🙂

Write the sentence down on a piece of paper.  Make all the corrections you can.
Compare your answers to ours. Did we find the same things?
