Check this please! Sentences with strong adjectives #stopvery
Hello everybody! I've watched a video on YouTube where I've found a lot of strong adjectives which can be used instead of these with very. I've decided to practise them, so please, if you're a native speaker, look over it. That's the first part. If I have some time, I'll write another one. Thanks in advance!

In addition to Felix's helpful comments above, I'd like to add:

You have abused luminous colours, I'm not feeling comfortable at your home!
I think instead of "abused," you could use "overdone," and "luminous" is meant more for things that emit light. Personally I would say something like "you've overdone the bright colors in here" or, for the sake of using more advanced vocabulary, "you've overdone the vibrant colors in here, I don't feel comfortable in your home!" As an aside, it's more natural to say "I don't feel comfortable in your home" rather than "I'm not feeling comfortable in your home" although from a purely grammar standpoint I'm not sure why.
I frequently mess up my bedroom!
"My bedroom is frequently messy!" is how I would phrase this because messing up means a making a mistake

The candidates for the president election should have transparent programme.
"presidential election" and I assume "should have a transparent programme/ platform" if I'm understanding you correctly

Jason is idiotic! He works as a waiter in a restaurant. His last bloomer was, when he brought 42 coffees, instead of 4 tea 2 coffees!
I think the word you were looking for is "blunder"

I'm so indolent those days, when I'm at home all the time, I'm not as prodactive as previously.
"proactive" and "productive" are words that fit here, not sure which one was meant to be used

Nice job expanding your vocab and bringing it into active use! You should consider putting posts like these under "notebooks" next time as you will likely get more feedback

What an awful weather today (we refer to THE weather, not A weather )

They have been obvious, I aced them! - I think it would read more naturally if it was to say "the questions were obvious, I aced them".

His last bloomer was - I'm not sure what you are referring to here :)?

I'm esctatic,, I could cheat on the exam and I didn't get caught red handed. - the first half is future tense and then you swap to past tense - so future tense would read - I could cheat on the exam and not get caught... past tense would be - I cheated on the exam and I didn't get caught.

I'm so apolgetic for him, - "to him"

Really great work :) the majority of English speaking people will probably never use some of these adjectives just because of the rarity of some of them.
