    comparatives etc

    Hi everybody,
    please let's have a look at the following sentence:

    Not for everyone is life in America so easy like for me.

    I know that it is wrong but I wonder what would be the right version.

    1) as much easy as it is for me
    2) as easy as it is for me

    or how?

    Thanks for your support

    Although "Not for everyone is life in America ..." is grammatical, it's rather wordy and awkward. It would be a lot simpler as "Life in America isn't as easy for everyone as it is for me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
