    grammar check for the whole sentence

    Hi
    Really, youíre lucky, because youíre doing part time job, I think you have a spare time to do what you want. For me, I am working six hours and 30 minutes in day and I donít get much time to do some others activities apart from my job.

    Hi darzamba,

    the sentence highlighted has a problem which is comma splice
    the solution is either you put a semi-colon or put a full stop .

    Really, you're lucky, because your job is only part time (or because you have a part-time job). I think you have spare time to do what you want. As for me, I'm working six and a half hours every day, and I don't get much time to do anything else but my job.
