    peripheral education

    Are the following sentences acceptable?

    1. Through/By copious club activities and curriculums to prevent against cyber addiction.
    2. Assist/Help students to be self-conscious of the influence of overusing Internet.
    3. Carry out peripheral education, and build up the crisis management alert system of victims of cyber addiction.

    Re: peripheral education

    These are not sentences. They each need a main verb.

    Also, we don't "prevent against" things. We "prevent" things from happening. We "guard against" things happening.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
