I will come to you on Monday.
`008`mi klama do ti'u la padjed.
On Tuesday I learn Chinese laguage.
`009`ti'u la redjed. mi cilre fi lo jugbau
You sleep on Wednesday.
`010`do sipni ti'u la cidjed.
Nikolay swims on Thursday.
`011`la nikolys. limna ti'u la vodjed.
Our group on Friday (will) drink beer.
`012`le mi girzu ti'u la mudjed. cu pinxe lo birje
On Saturday Jews rest from working.
`013`ti'u la xadjed. loi xebro cu surla lo gunka

Those should be {ca} rather than {ti'u}. {ti'u} tags a clock time.

In January, (people) celebrate the New Year.
`027`la pamast. detri lenu salci le cnino nanca

I'd say {ca la pamast cu salci le cnino nanca}. I don't
think January is a date.

On 10th I begin working.
`038`de'i li pano mi di'a gunka

"I resume working" might be more clear. {co'a} would be better for "begin".

Columbus discovered a new country is dated when?
`050`lenu la kolombus. facki lo cnino gugde cu se detri ma
(In) year 1492.
`051`la pavosorenanc.
Mekhmet seized Constantinopolis is dated when?
`052`la mexmet. dable'a la konstantiNUpolis. de'i ma
In year 1453.
`053`la pavomucinanc.
The French revolution is dated when?
`054`lenu fraso jecyga'ibai cu se detri ma
In year 1789.
`055`la pazebisonanc.
Marx and Engels created the Communist Manifesto - dated when?
`056`la marks. joi la .engels. finti le guntrusi'o selpeicku ku de'i ma
In year 1848.
`057`la pabivobinanc.
Mukhammed came to Medina - dated when?
`058`la muxamed. klama la medinas. de'i ma
In year 622.
`059`la xarerenanc.

{li pavosore} could be a date. But I don't think a year is a date.
{de'i li xarere} or {ca la xarerenanc}.

 
The mother of the infant travels.
`081`le mamta pe le cifnu ku litru
The mother of the infant traveller.
`082`le mamta pe le cifnu litru

{pe} should be {be}.

Zhang left the bar at 10 o'clock. Susan came to the bar at 11 o'clock.
`085`la jan. cliva le barja ti'u la daucac. .i la suzyn. klama le
barja ti'u la feicac.

{ca la daucac}, {ca la feicac} or {ti'u li dau}, {ti'u li fei}.

 
Near Paris, I work.
`118`vi la paris. mi gunka
A long way from my home, I work.
`119`vu le mi zdani mi gunka
A medium distance from where Kennedy was killed, I work.
`120`va lenu la KEnedis. se catra kei mi gunka

I think vi/va/vu should be used to tag distances, not origins. For
example:

ki la paris vi lo minli mi gunka
I work only a mile away from Paris.

ki le mi zdani vu lo ki'otre be li muno mi gunka
I work 50 kilometers (a long way) away from my home.

ki le nu la KEnedis se catra kei va lo so'o zdagri mi gunka
I work several blocks away from where Kennedy was killed.

 
The rocket is flying upwards.
`136`le jakne cu ga'u vofli

"Upwards" would be {ga'u mo'i}.

Your house is where?
`149`zdani do vi ma

I'd say {bu'u ma} or {tu'i ma}. The latter for permanent sites.

A while after Zhang left, Susan is standing in the bar.
`156`baza lenu la jan. cliva kei la suzyn. sanli ne'i vi le barja

What does {vi} do there?

 
"Take that away. Give me a new wine bottle."
`163`ko lebna ta .i ko dunda lo cnino vanju botpi mi

That's a "(new wine) bottle", not a "new (wine bottle)".

Now Susan lives some way away from Zhang.
`166`la suzyn. ca xabju va la jan.
Every Thursday Susan goes to the bar, not far from the office.
`168`ca ro la vodjed. la suzyn. klama le barja va le briju
At the bar Susan meets Susan's long-time friends.
`169`vi le barja la suzyn. penmi le la suzyn. ze'u pendo

See above re vi/va

Susan sits away from the German beer.
`171`la suzyn. zutse to'o le dotco birje

Facing away?

mu'o mi'e xorxes
