Thank you for your consideration and time if you choose to answer. Every bit of information is appreciated.


Be careful not to mix up "desu" with regular verbs. You do that occasionally. Also keep in mind that some of the verbs you have in present continuous "nonde iru" instead of standard form "nomu" so remember that the helping verb "iru" is what you have to conjugate.

1. OK
2. Regular verb: Nodo ga kawaita. Nodo go kawawnai. Nodo ga kawawanakatta.
3. If use are using continuous form (-te iru) this is correct.
4. last one should be tadashikunakatta. (you added an extra i)
5. Same as 5
6. ippai /ippai ja nai/ippai janakatta
7. OK
9.OK, but it's in present continuous
10. Use the verb: (in present continuous) tsukarete ita / tsukarete inai/ tsukarete inakatta
