In the dialog that I created, some of the girls loved going to the mall shopping for fun thought. While the other girl odiava.Não for shopping, but for having many people in that place.

Hello Elizete:

 

   That is a good  composition.  You used   "there is" and "there are" and "how often"  quite well.

 

One sentence that needed fuller expression was this one:

 

"Cause ' I got many promotion.  Don't you think have fun?"

 

  It might be written this way for more accuracy.  "Because I got  ("a" or "my")  promotion.

 

   "Don't you  want to have  fun?"   or  "Aren't you thinking about having some fun?"

 

  Phobia is also a technical term.  The more common term  about discomfort in a  crowed would be "fear".  So if we say;  "There's a lot of people in   that place!"    ...we would usually be referring to a fear.

 

  We would use   PHOBIA  if  a  person  had been to a Psychiatrist and  received an actual diagnosis for a PHOBIA ("fear").   It is more normal  for people generally to refer to their "fear" of a large crowd  or a general discomfort.

 

  Good writing  for a dialogue  Elizete.
