Phrases for my presentation

Hello!
Are these phrases right for my presentation tomorrow?
-Y Para Terminar vamos a formular algunas preguntas. (At the beginning)

-Juan dice que no quiere hablar catalan porque no tiene catalan para vivir en Bellvitge

-No tiene contacto con catalanes. Por eso no hablan catalan entre si. (Mit seinen Freunden)

Ademas la vida en Barcelona es muy cara. Este es el motivo porque las personas con poco dinero viven en esta (i will show the picture) casas.

Is this right?

Sorry, but I didn't exactly do a good job with 'catalan'. It is spelled 'catalán'. The accented vowel is important. That is what was wrong with other words I marked, like 'entre sí' and 'además'.

The pair of empty parentheses indicate that two words are missing (and neither is an article). Think about how you say 'have to speak' in Spanish and insert those words.

The grammar used for the last two words, 'esta casas', is still not correct. The first word needs to agree in number with the last word.

So, insert all accented vowels, insert two missing words and fix the last two words.
