    enter the site/visit the site

    Which is more natural?
    1) Occasionally I enter the site “Odnoklassniki” to catch up on the day’s events with my friends.
    2) Occasionally I visit the site “Odnoklassniki” to catch up on the day’s events with my friends.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: enter the site/visit the site

    I would say "visit", but "enter" is not wrong.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    I would use visit unless it's one of those sites that has flash on the homepage or something similar and you have to click a button to see the content, when I would use enter.

    Re: enter the site/visit the site

    I would use "visit" in either case.

    Re: enter the site/visit the site

    Sorry- I was a bit unclear. I would use enter for the act of clicking on the button to get in, but if talking about the site in general, I would use visit.
