    I will give you some more advanced (stylistically more in the spirit of the language) corrections:

    Zovem se Miranda. - I am Miranda
    Dvadeset i dvije su mi godine. -I have 22 years
    Namjeravam naučiti hrvatski jezik. - I will learn Croatian

    Dobro sam. -I am good
    Dobro si. -You are good
    Dobro je. -He/she is good
    Dobro smo. -We are good
    Dobro ste. -You all are good
    on/ona/oni su -They(m), They(f), Those/Its good

    Jest ću. -I will eat
    Pojest ćeš me. -You will eat me
    Pojest će jabuku. -He will eat an apple
    Jest ćemo kruh. -We will eat bread
    Svi ćete puno jesti kruh. -You all will eat bread alot
    Oni će umrijeti -Those will die

    The sentences that you wrote, and chubitea corrected, are correct and completely understandable to everyone in Croatia. You don't need to bother yourself with style at this point. I'm just trying to give you the feel of learned/advanced language that you would encounter in books or on TV (though the level of our language spoken on television these days leaves a lot to be desired).

     

    pojesti/jesti is the completed/in progress difference:

    jesti - means to be half through the meal. you are eating right now.

    pojesti - meal is finished. you already ate it.

     

    Good luck! Sretno!

    I believe Tea missed this one...

    Imam 22 godine. -I have 22 years
