I included a few questions and a short paragraph about a teenager talking about
the internet (Do you think I should add other reasons for using the net?)


1) What does the sentence "I'm sick leaving" mean? Does it mean "I'm on scik leave?"
2) My students would like to start a pen friendship with your students and will be very happy to give them hospitality. (is this sentence correct?)
3) I use the net mainly to conduct school research in history, geography, and science.
4) Whenever I need to get information, I look it up on the 'net. I just have to type my key words into the search engine, and in less than a second, I get all the information I need.
However, I don’t copy the information word for work but I put it into my own words.
5) I also use a translation programme on the 'net. I enter the text, and the programme translates it for me.
6) I’ve never used an online homework agency or played games with people online. I joined Facebook two year ago and I update my profile with personal details once a (How often do people normally do that??” “I blog my profile” is possible?).

  • English - ,

    1) What does the sentence "I'm sick leaving" mean? Does it mean "I'm on scik leave?" It would be a better sentence if it were 'I'm on sick leave.' Using "sick-leaving" as a verb form is something I've never heard or seen before!

    2) My students would like to start pen friendships with your students and will be very happy to show them hospitality.

    3) I use the 'net mainly to conduct school research in history, geography, and science.

    4) Whenever I need to find information, I look it up on the 'net. I just have to type my key words into the search engine, and in less than a second, I get all the information I need. <~~perfect!

    However, I don’t copy the information word for word, but I put it into my own words.

    5) OK

    6) I’ve never used an online homework agency or played games with people online. I joined Facebook two years ago, and I update my profile with personal details once every few weeks. I also keep a blog, on which there's a link to my Facebook page.

    Other reasons people use the 'net:

    - job-hunting and networking (such as on LinkedIn)
    - posting photos in Flickr or Picasa
    - writing email correspondence to family and friends
    - keeping blogs for a wide variety of reasons (to share photos with family and friends, to share photos and stories of pets, etc.)
    - to watch movies and TV episodes, when available
    - to watch live-streaming news programs when available
    and on and on and on!!
