Hello Anna :)

Welcome to Lingora!

Your English is excellent - you speak really confidently, fluently and clearly and your pronunciation is excellent. It's very hard for me (as a native English speaker) to find things you need to improve at. When did you start learning English? Have you studied abroad in an English speaking country?

Here are just a few minor corrections;

1. When you said "I don't have vacations in one year" this is not quite correct. The best way is to say "I haven't had a vacation for a year" or "I haven't taken a vacation this year"

2. When you said "We stay at home in vacation" this is very nearly correct but it should be "We stay at home on vacation"

3. When you said "There's a very good weather all the time" it would sound better to say "The weather is very good all the time".

4. When you said "Thank you for hearing me" the verb you should use in this instance is "to listen". So you should have said "thank you for listening to me". Take a look here at this article which explains the differences between "hear" and "listen" http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/radio/specials/1535_questionanswer/page30.shtml

Ps: I'm so jealous that you have a swimming pool :)
