    Grammar in sentence

    Hello, can somebody check this sentence? I am not sure if it is correct. Thanks :)

    Obviously, salary from part-time job isnīt high enough for funding their whole life but itīs great method how to learn new things and help your parents financially.

    See my corrections above.

    I don't see how the salary from a part-time job can help you learn new things.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have never learnt anything from a full-time salary either, if it comes to that .
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Emsr2d2's corrections are right. Also, put a comma before "but." It's a compound sentence.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    We Americans just don't like T's as much as the British do!
