Dear native English speakers,
would you proofread my sentences?

1 Mike does whatever he wants to do.
2 I hope my father will carry out his promise.
3 The mayor had parking banned in this area.
4 This is a course for advanced students wishing to improve their English skills.
5 We hope to improve the quality of our products.
6 I need a permanent job.
7 The convenience store meets our daily needs.
8 He carried out what he said.
9 My mother buys whatever she wants.
10 Their quality of life was improved.
11 Any student can use this dictionary.
12 This milk is made into cheese.

Thanks in advance.
Hirashin

All grammatically correct. I prefer 'The mayor banned parking in this area' and 'He did what he said' for 3 and 8.

Correct, but usually I hear this as "Mike does whatever he wants."

I think it's right, but usually I hear this as "He carried out what he said he would."
I'd say that too, but Hirashin's students are rather low level, so I made the suggestion as simple as possible.
