Como dizer "questions about the use of some sentences" em inglês

Hi folks!

Well, I do need your help. I've been teaching English for exactly one year and I still have lots of questions about the use of some sentences.I haven't attended college, but I've taken English lessons for 3 years. One of these days I realized that I don't know how to say many sentences in English and that made me feel absolutely frustrated.Plus, I've been making a lot of mistakes in English, especially orally and I must confess I feel miserable when that happens. Moreover, I feel insecure to make some constructions, because I always think they might be incorrect.Could anybody translate the following sentences into English, please?


1) Já faz um tempão que estou com o seu dinheiro guardado.
2) Eu fiquei com medo de ter me preciptado.
3) Eu queria ter tido tempo de fazer aquela brincadeira.
4) Espero que vocês tenha tirado uma boa nota.
5) Não se cobre tanto assim.
6) Quando eu ia atender o telefone elé já tinha parado de tocar.
7) Ela sempre participava das aulas, fazia os exercícios,...

Well, I guess that's all.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!

Cacau

It's been quite a while I'v been keeping your money

2) Eu fiquei com medo de ter me preciptado.

3) Eu queria ter tido tempo de fazer aquela brincadeira.

I wish I had had time for that game (veja esse tipo de construção no meu blog)

4) Espero que vocês tenha tirado uma boa nota.

I hope you have got great grades

5) Não se cobre tanto assim.

Do not be that demaning on yourself

6) Quando eu ia atender o telefone elé já tinha parado de tocar.

Whe I was about to answer the phone it had already stopped ringing

Hmmm... no such construction or otherwise differently worded on Google. I mean, Google has no such record of a sentence like that.

Here goes nothing again.

"I felt [somehow] unsure about my ability to make..."

I feel sorry about that. I think I have done an awful lot of experimenting with words, some of which ended up confusing me. :(

'To feel insecure' goes with about as well

So, we could say -
I always feel insecure about using some constructions...



1) Já faz um tempão que estou com o seu dinheiro guardado.

It's been quite a while I'v been keeping your money
or
It's been a long time I'm keeping your money.


2) Eu fiquei com medo de ter me preciptado.

I was afraid I had pricipitated myself --- I don't think that it's right like that

- I was afraid of having hastened/precipitaded myself.
