すみません ここから, マクドナルド は どこ です か。
Excuse me from here, where is McDonalds?

まっすぐいって. はしを わたる。えき に いきます. ここから, みぎ に まがって. マクドナルド の まえ に えきがあります。
Go straight. Cross the bridge. Go to the station. After that, turn right. McDonalds is in front of the station.

ありがとう ございます。
Thank you very much.

I feel these sentences need to be longer and not. Like this. All the. Time. Because it. Feels unnatural. Without fluidity. If you. See what I. Mean.

If anyone can see any mistakes, please tell me ;)

I would like to only use masu verbs for a while longer as I think they're "safe" to learn with and use.

ジャックさん、

たくさんのコメントありがとうございます!そしてお返事(へんじ)が遅く(おそく)なってごめんなさい。
1月(がつ)から埼玉(さいたま)に住んで(すんで)いるのですね。日本(にほん)の生活(せいかつ)には慣れ(なれ)ましたか?
日本語をいっぱい目(め)に耳(みみ)にすると思う(おもう)ので、きっと日本語がどんどん上達(じょうたつ)することでしょう。
これからも頑張って(がんばって)ください。

Thank you for your many comments and sorry for our late reply.
So you have been living in Saitama since January. Are you used to living in Japan?
Now you are surrounded by Japanese. You will see and hear many Japanese words. I bet your Japanese will improve by the second!
Good luck to you!
