Answer
Hi again Nilo,


Are these sentence correct?

They poured money over my head. >>> correct

They poured money on me. >>> never heard this expression

I poured water on my hands. >>> correct

I poured wter over my hands. >>> the correct expression is "pour water on my hands" also, it's "water" (I'm guessing that's a typo)

My name's Sarah. >>> correct

I am sick now and I am at the hospital. when I get well I can go back home. >>> correct. You need a capital W for When though

They are at the hospital,they have come to visit me,I am sick. >>> correct

The nurses are in the hospial. >>> correct ("hospiTal") if what you're trying to say is that they are sick and are hospitalized because of that. Otherwise you should say "The nurses work in the hospital."

It is only a few months that I have moved into this new house. >>> needs a different verb tense in the first sentence: It has only been a few months that I have moved into this new house.

Best,

Amy
