    about the breeze

    Hi,

    I don't know the right words to say about the fan/ air conditioner.

    1. The breeze from the fan did not reach me.
    2. I didn't get the breeze.
    3. I did not get the air flow.
    4. Turn the fan to move. The air flow did not get to me.
    5. the air conditioner diffuse the cool air throughout the room.
    6. The breeze from the air conditioner does not spread the entire L-shaped living room.

    Do all these sentences sound alright to the ear?

    Do you think they all sound OK?

    (As an aside, I've only recently returned to the site after several months' absence, but this post/question is very familiar. Am I the only person who recognises it?)

    1. The breeze (OR simply air) from the fan did not reach me. Not bad, but when I think of "breeze", I think of natural air flow.
    2. I didn't get (OR feel) the breeze.
    3. I did not get (OR feel) the air flow.
    4. Turn the fan to move (? Do you mean to move as in 'oscillate' ? ). The air flow did not get to me.
    5. The air conditioner diffused the cool air throughout the room. OK
    6. The breeze from the air conditioner does not spreaddistribute (OR circulate) air (OR cool air) throughout the entire L-shaped living room.

    I'm sure there are many ways to express your examples. Here are a few thoughts.
