Kind regards


Ester,

If I may offer some suggestions to improve your post I would like to see something like this, "It would be very difficult for me to live without the internet, because I use it to keep a diary, and to do research for my PhD studies."

I think your biggest problem is construction, or the placing of your words, English is very different from Portuguese, but it will come with practice.

I hope this helps you a little.

Bill, it seems to me that by "I work diary" Ester might have meant, "I work daily" instead. She may have thought Portuguese where she should have thought English. Or so I think.

Marcio,

Very good point, then her error here would just be spelling, and in that case the last part of the sentence should read, "... I work with it daily doing research for my PhD studies." this makes more sense.

Thank you for a different point of view, I can not think in Portuguese at all and sometimes have a hard time with English.

Yannasan,

I would like to suggest that your reply be rewritten to read something like this, "I can't survive without the internet, so I have to use it every day. If I don't, I feel like something is missing. I'm addicted to using the internet."

To a Portuguese speaker, the proper construction of an English setence can be very confusing, but with practice it becomes easier.

Good Luck and I hope this helps you.

I have no idea about how long I can survive without the internet, just because I'm so accustomed to using the Internet daily, as if it becomes part of my routine. I think I'm addicted to using the internet, I also use the internet before go bed every night through my cell.

Marco,

I think I would prefer to see something along these lines.

"Actually very little time, since I use the internet for research in my studies of English, Math, PC, the news, etcetera. I think the internet is of little value when you do not use it to improve your knowledge."

I hope you can gain from this post.

Bruno,

Please consider this rewrite, I think it is more concise and clear.

"I don't think I can survive long without the internet, because most of the research that I do for my studies I do online."

Let me know what you think and if it says what you were trying to communicate.
