    do so through the Internet

    Hello.

    If somebody likes to see or touch products personally, he or she cannot do so through the Internet.

    Can I say "they" instead of "he or she"? Is it OK to say "through the Internet"?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: do so through the Internet

    I would also use "on the internet". You could use "... cannot do so through a computer screen".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
