    06. My father knows how to drive very well.

          My father is a good driver.

    ** This one is fine.

    07. I’m afraid to go downtown at night.

          There are many thieves in downtown.

    ** Remove the word 'in', or keep it and adjust the sentence.

    You could say:

        There are many thieves downtown.     

        There are many thieves in the downtown area.

    08. There was a terrible accident on the corner.

          Two cars are broken.

    **This one needs some help. You generally don't use the word 'broken' for a damaged car, you use the word 'damage'. 

    You could say:

       Two cars collided and there has been a lot of damage. 

    09. I’ll have to work tomorrow.

          Tomorrow is not hollyday.

    **Holiday is spelled incorrectly.

           Tomorrow is not a holiday. 

    10. We should speak only English.

          We will do it in the next book.

    ** This one sort of contradicts itself. You read a book, you don't speak it. 

    You could say:

         We will speak it when we study the next book. 

         We will use English when we have the next lesson.

    Your sentences are almost correct, but they need some adjustment.

    06 is good

    07 should be written like this: There are many thieves downtown.

    08 should be written like this: Two cars were damaged.

    09 should be written like this: Tomorrow is not a holiday.

    10. your answer is unclear. 'We will do it in the next book' is confusing. Perhaps the answer should be: We will do it when we are working from the next book.
