Could someone please help me by explaining what the grammatical errors are in these sentences? Can you explain in detail grammatically why the sentences are wrong?

I would let you as soon as possible.

We put there our luggage.

On five o'clock I want to eat my tea.

Thank you for the informations.

We have got three children. There are six, eight and eleven years old.

Thanks in advance!

Hello GreenPen,

1. This is rather a strange sentence. I would let you what? It's difficult to help with this one without more information or context.

2. In this sentence, 'there' goes at the end. Keep the Subject+Verb+Object construction, and the place the locative (the word that indicates place or location) after.

3. You need the preposition 'at' when you talk about a specific time. eg. I go to bed at 10pm.

4. Information is an uncountable noun in English, so never has an 's' on the end.

5. In this sentence you need to use 'they' rather than 'there' because you are referring to the children previously mentioned and need a pronoun for this.

The second of your two sentences is fairly formal and might be more commonly seen in written texts than spoken, although it is not impossible that it might be spoken in a formal context (possibly educational, literary, newscasting or something similar). Both sentences mean the same thing, but the first would be more common than the second, in my opinion.

I hope this is helpful.
