The first ten sentences were perfect; nice job! The last one was almost completely correct, but "precinct" would normally refer to something like a county that divides an area for something like voting, so I suggest you use a different word there. Otherwise, those were lovely.

Very nice! I agree with Mars. Try shopping center or shopping mall if you are talking about shopping in America.
