参考答案及解析:

1 将no改为 not

2 将place改为land
place是可数名词,作“地方”讲,而land意为“土地,田地”是不可数名词。例如:
Solitude is a good place to visit but a poor place to stay.
当你偶尔光顾时,独处是一个美妙的境地,但是如果久留,它却是一个糟糕的地方。
There is a vacant piece of land near the house; we can build there.

3 将started改为start
start应使用不定式,以和前面的find,build一致。

4 将working改为work。
work应该用第三人称复数,和live一致。另外,family在这里作“家人”讲,是复数。

5 将anyone改为everyone
这里是要用everyone指每个人,而不是要用anyone泛指。

6 将but删除

7将before改为after
根据上下文判断,这里要表达的是二战之后。

8 将But改为 And
根据语意,这里要表达的是递进关系,而不是转折关系。例如:
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. And that’s my religion.
当我行善事,我感到坦然;当我行恶时,我感到内疚。这就是我的人生之道。

9 将it改为they

10 在house the中间加入介词as
regard…as 作“把……当作……”讲。
