    It is for sure that.....

    Do we have a sentence pattern like:

    It is for sure that life would be very hard without electricity.

    It is for sure that...=It is a sure thing that....?

    Thank you.

    Re: It is for sure that.....

    Hello jiaruchan, I'm not a teacher, but I hope my advice helps!

    I believe "assured" is a better word to use in that context. :)

    It is an assured thing that life would be very hard without electricity.

    Even better would be: "It's certain that life..."

    If you want to use "for sure", you don't need "It is".

    It's somewhat colloquial, but you can say:

    For sure, life would be very hard without electricity.
    Life would be very hard without electricity, for sure.

    But I agree with the previous poster that "It's certain that......." would be better and more formal.
