Dear native English speakers,
Here's my new exercise sheet. Would you please check it?
3 次の文を和訳しなさい。
①I've lived in Ibaraki, Osaka, for more than twenty years. (地名は大きな単位が後)

③After the war, he worked for this hospital as a nurse.

④The city government supplied the victims of the earthquake with clothing and food.
(city government = 市(役所) victim = 被災者 earthquake = 地震 clothing = 衣服)
