    01]   OK.

    02]   First sentence is fine. The response is totally crazy!    Possibly you mean: "In Brazil we always celebrate an achievement with pizza."  If that is not what you mean, please describe what you mean.  Note that 'end up' has a specialist meaning, which could never be applied to any sort of food.

    03]    "Yes, she should study further."   Or: "No, she doesn't need to study any further." Your response mixes up a negative and a positive response.

    04]   OK.    Note 'tires' spelled thus in the USA, but 'tyres' in Britain.

    05]   "Is it your father who is also going to study at Wizard?  No, it is my friend who is also going to study at Wizard."   This presumes that you have already told somebody about somebody else who is already going to study at Wizard.   I assume that Wizard is the name of a college, not that those people are going to learn to be wizards!  "Wizard" is a strange name to choose for a fictional college.

    06]   First OK.    "My cousin is. He is six foot one."  

    In speech we say simply, for instance, "Five foot ten".  We all know that the second figure is inches.
