    Default the ways & the people

    I'm confused by the following sentences. Please help me correct them. Thanks.


    The way & the people
    1. The first way which we used the most is searching on the Internet.
    We search many webs of doctors, hospitals, even colleges.

    2. The second way is asking people, the people such as PE teachers, friends, family, students or the teacher who works in the health center.

    If you are talking about the past - The first way we used the most was searching on the Internet.
    If you are talking about the present - The first way we use the most is searching on the Internet.

    This sentence would be much better if you dropped "first way".

    We search many webs of doctors, hospitals, even colleges.
    You can't search many webs.
    1. We search the Web sites of doctors, hospitals, and even colleges.


    2. The second way is asking people, the people such as PE teachers, friends, family, students or the teacher who works in the health center.

    I would write it this way - The second way is asking people: people such as the PE teachers, friends, family, students, or the teacher who works in the health center.
