    Sentences Correction

    Hi,

    Would you please tell me if there are any errors in the sentences below? If so, please give me some suggestions.

    I want to immediately point out that I never used torrent in downloading files. Yes, I downloaded a couple of files, but it was a long time ago, and it was just, as I can remember, a couple of times. It never happened again.

    But now that I know that it is an illegal action, it will never happen again. I promise.

    Many thanks.

    Looks OK to me. Maybe "for downloading files" or "to download files".

    Re: Sentences Correction

    So you downloaded files, just not using Torrent?

    Otherwise you can't say you never did, and then say you only downloaded a few.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
