~ と思います
1. No particle after てんき?
2. つぎテスト. Also, recheck how to end a sentence in the plain form with an い-adjective.
3. They're just going to listen to karaoke? Grammatically valid, but seems like a strange thing to do :)

~といっていました
1. Where did the も go?
3. Where did the わたし come from? This makes it possible to misinterpret the sentence as Mary saying that *you* live in 京都. Oh, and make sure to keep the tense of すむ.

じょうず/へた
2. Video games <> テニス
3. Needs a nomalizer の. In 5) you did write it though.
4. Best rewritten as 日本語ではなすのがじょうず or just 日本語がじょうず like in 1)

メアリーさんはビデオゲームがへたです。

I think you can say カラオケ(を)する; but the safest route is probably カラオケに行く.
The 京都 sentence is still incorrect.

カラオケに行く covers the singing part as well; there is no need to express うたう separately..

Thanks Mike,
The problem was I didn't know much about Karaoke and it was the only word I could think about in my vocabulary at the time. With this knowledge I didn't know everyone went there to sing, I thought it was just a big place where you can either sing or just lounge and listen to others but I will remember to not separate the meaning into the two. I'm also aware it's popular in japan just never saw much about it.

I'm pretty sure you won't reply since most people just read and carry on with what they were doing but thanks again.

It is sort of unique in that it is both the name of a place and of an activity. As you surmise, not everyone necessarily sings while there. But as the type of activities one engages in there are commonly understood it isn't necessary to separate them out.

Compare:

Sally and Jane went to the restroom.

Sally and Jane went to the restroom, where Sally took a dump.
