    penetrates or penetrated

    Are my sentences proper in English?

    Every hall or room has a different style and is designed differently.

    Nowadays it is not unusual to see people are being robbed on the streets. Or just are robbed?

    When I lived in a duplex, I had an inconsiderate neighbour who made tons of noise and didn't care that the noise of his loud Rock music or his barking dog penetrates through my ceiling.

    I don't believe that the Internet can't replace printed materials because many blind people can read just printed books since by touching the monitor with their fingers, they can't get the information. Does my sentence seem rude? Or should I say blind people can read a book by touching it with their fingers.

    Thank you for your response.

    Or just are robbed? This isn't a sentence.

    When I lived in a duplex, I had an inconsiderate neighbour who made tons of noise and didn't care that the noise of his loud Rock music or his barking dog penetrated through my ceiling. OK with 'penetrated'

    I don't believe that the Internet can't replace printed materials because many blind people can read just printed books since by touching the monitor with their fingers, they can't get the information. This is quite confused. Did you mean the double negative at the beginning?

    Does my sentence seem rude? This is a good sentence.
    Or should I say "blind people can read a book by touching it with their fingers". OK with the quotes.

    Thank you for your response. This is fine.
    Try to quote your example sentences.
