    not when

    Hi,

    I like her, not because she is pretty, but because she has a nice personality.

    Can we apply this structure to such a sentence as the following?

    -You have to study English, not just when you are at school, when you even watch Tv.

    I am aware that it may seem a little strange, but I would like to know if the structure is understandable or not.

    Thanks.

    Don't forget the "but" part of the structure.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
