Hallo Gloria,


zunächst die Korrektur deines Textes. Der erste Satz ist perfekt! Der zweite könnte folgendermaßen lauten (The second sentence could be like the following):


"...Ich mag es, Brot und Brötchen zu kaufen."


What kind of bread do you prefer? White bread or rye bread? Also there are many different kind of "Brötchen". Do you like them with or without seeds on them?


Looking forward to hearing from you!


Best,


Jennifer
