Hi Everyone! I would really appreciate if you guys can tell me if the the following answers to these questions are grammatically correct:

1. えりんさんはどの人ですか。      えりんさんはけにちさんにはなしている人です。

2. もう新しい先生に話しましたか。     いいえ、まだ話していません。

3. 先週の週末、だれかに会いましたか。  はい、私の友だちから大学に会いました。(It's supposed to say, "I met my friend from college")

And for #4, does it make sense to add しますto the end of the sentence if it already ends with する?

4. しゅまつは、えいがをみたり、かいものをしたり。。。(しました?)
I watched a movie, shopped, etc., on the weekend.

Thanks in advance :)

3. 大学の友だちに会いました

4. Yes, you end it in しました, します, or whatever tense form might be appropriate(i.e. past). You should not end a sentence with たり at the end.

The other two seem correct to me.

えりんさんはけにちさんにはなしている人です。
Is that supposed to be けんいち?

しゅまつは、えいがをみたり、かいものをしたり
That should be しゅまつ.

Were you given the questions and had to come up with answers, or did you have to come up with the questions too?

1)
けんいちさんはなしている人です

If you want to say "the person who is talking to Ken'ichi" with emphasizing "talk to him unilaterally", けんいちさんにはなしかけている人 is more natural.

4)
しゅうまつは、えいがをみたり、かいものをしたりしました。 is correct. You can't use します here, since you want to say "I watched a movie, shopped, etc., on the weekend".
