    Dear Language Experts,

    As a non-native speaker, I need to know whether it is correct to say " (1) The cellphone brings us convenience and (2) Credit cards can bring us danger." Thank you a lot.

    Sincerely,
    maoyueh

    They are both grammatically correct, but neither one is natural.
