    Is this good English?

    Hello, i am from sweden and study English in my school. I must write about Astrid lindgren(a swedish person) on my englihs lesson and i want to know if this is correct english. If it is not please tell me and please those who is from UK or US or understand english 100% only asnwer=).

    Astrid Lindgren was borned 1902 to her parents Samuel August and Hanna Ericsson. They lived on a rectory that was built in 1411 where Samuel August was rectory tenants. Samuel was a good author and he had good memory too. He remembered a lot of things from his childhood that he told for he´s kids. While Hanna was extremly good at languages, hanna wanted to become a teacher.
    Astrid and her 3 siblings went on a small school in Vimmerby there Astrid already was interested at writing and reading. One of her essays in school had been published in the newspaper and then the village called her Vimmerbys Selma Lagerlöf.

    You only put a comma before "and" if the remaining sentence can stand on it's own.
    The remaining words(after and) need a subject, verb, and predicate if you want to put a comma before it.
