comment “I need to work on…” for a general sentence
It's ok for me. "Practicar" is a litle less general ("to practice").

BTW, "gentes" is not very usual, but it exists. gramatikus.wordpress.com/2011/03/30/%C2%BFgente-o-gentes

comment Are there any nouns with irregular plurals in Spanish?
The bit about z->ces is actually a general rule (not specific to plurals), "z" always changes to "c" before "e" and "i". Eg: "caza" -> "cacería". "paz" -> "pacífico".

comment When to use the article “el” with infinitives in Spanish?
@Gorpik : Yes, in "me gusta el buen comer", 'comer' is a real noun, not a verb that acts synctatically as a noun (as in "me gusta comer", or "me gusta comer bien"), the comment at the end of my answer applies.

comment Why is “agua” masculine in singular form and feminine in plural? “El agua” / “Las aguas”
I want to stress: those feminine nouns are NOT converted to masculine; the rule is to use the masculine article, but the noun is still feminine (see Flimzy's answer).
