    basic level daily exercise

    Source : Self writing practice

    ..it helps her family play Pokemon together and get a common interest.
    And even though it's a basic level daily exercise, but it's a way to make them walk with ease and fun.

    In the underlined parts, if something is wrong grammar-wise, please let me know.

    Re: basic level daily exercise

    Perhaps:

    Playing Pokemon is something her family can do together. And they get exercise without knowing it.

    Or:

    Playing Pokemon is something her family can do together. Plus they get exercise and have fun at the same time.

    The word but doesn't work in your sentence.

    I am not sure of either of your underlined phrases.

    The first underlined part means "a simple exercise, not an arduous one"
    and the second "easily and with fun". I made it "with ease and fun" to make it simple, but it seems "easily and with fun" could be better.

    And even though it's a basic level daily exercise, but it's a way to make them walk with ease and fun.

    Re: basic level daily exercise

    "With" and "fun" don't work together. You could say "it's a fun and easy way to get them walking/to walk."

    Thanks a lot! Also, would "simple exercise" be better than this?

    even though it's a basic level daily exercise

    Goes has already responded to this thread, making this easier for me.


    I don't consider simple the opposite of strenuous. For example, shoveling snow in freezing weather might be simple (uncomplicated), but that doesn't make it easy. Also, you don't want to make them walk. You want to get them to walk by giving them something fun to do. Finally, I am not sure what s basic level exercise is, but it's your phrase, not mine.

    Re: basic level daily exercise

    You still need to remove "but".

    Even though it's a basic-level daily exercise, it's a way to get them to exercise.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
