    students nowadays

    Hi there,
    Please proofread this sentences.

    Students nowadays are lazier than the last generations. They like playing computer games all day and ignore their studies.

    I've made a small adjustment.

    The last generations doesn't sound quite right.

    The last seems to specifiy something (some singular thing).

    The last car I bought was great.

    The last lesson he taught was terrible.

    This is the last time I help you!


    I could be wrong and your original sentence could be fine, but I (personally) would change it just in case.
