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.

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!
