    make sense?

    I've found this sentence on the internet:

    We depend almost all of our energy resources on import from abroad.

    How does it sound to you native speakers? Sounds natural?

    Nope.

    It should be:

    'We depend foralmost all of our energy resources on import from abroad.'

    And even then it would be more clearly phrased:

    'We depend on import from abroad for almost all of our energy resources.'
