I thought your plan was to write simple sentences using common words and ending with a punctuation mark.

'Adhibition' is so rare I've never heard it before in my life. Where did you get that from — a book of the most abstruse and esoteric words in English?

In any case it would have to be the verb 'adhibit' instead, and I still have no idea what you are trying to say.

I just want to say that: Doctors many times inform us to introduction to the shop this computers.

Or maybe , doctors tell us to make a possibility of buying the items>


Here many words:
Recently, doctors frequently/often request/to admonish/exhord/reprimand to adhibition/make/introduce the possibility/chance of purchasing/buying computers: Apple MacBook, Samsung2

Unfortunately that doesn't make any more sense. I think the beginning should be "Doctors frequently tell us to ..." but after that I'm lost. The word after "to" needs to be a verb. "This computers" doesn't work - "this" is singular and "computers" is plural. I don't know what is supposed to be done "to the shop".

If you used Google Translate for help with this, please try again without using it.

Vogel, do you know other languages? Can you post the same sentence in another foreign language or at least Polish?

PL: Lekarze, dość często upominają się o możliwość zakupu komputerów

Check this in translator please.

@Piscean Do you mean Doctors have recently asked if they could buy computers?

No I mean that they ask about making a possibility of buy computer..
Something like:
There aren't a computer in the shop, so doctors please to make a possibility of buying computers.
They please to making the computers to be in this shop..
,
I think i want to use word "to admonish"

What kind of shop are the doctors in?

I can't see any way for "admonish to work in this scenario.

I did the same thing. I couldn't think why they needed to warn us, so I moved on.
Vogel - you must try to write VERY SIMPLE sentences. Your English is not yet ready for the sentences you are trying to write.

hmm,,so maybe think like that:

( You are from Germany) You want to buy something in shop which is available only to people from Mexcio for example. So you go to this shop and ask about making them a possibility of buying this item? from their shop, cause you can't do it because of your nationality.

I want to tell:
that:

Doctor, ask/demand(?), to making a possibility to buy a computer: XYZ and YZX ///

It is the easier way to explain what i want to say
People from the street know what I want to tell, and professional english speaker like you don't. That's sad :(

People "on the street" won't have any more idea of what you're trying to say than we do.

You have been told several times now that you are trying to write sentences that are too difficult for your level of English. I would like to ask you to do something for us - please tell us what you did yesterday, from the time you woke up until the time you went to sleep. Don't try to write complicated sentences - pretend you are talking to a small child so use simple words and sentences. We need to get an idea of the real level of your English.

Doctors can ask about the possibility of buying computers - if permission is necessary, for example from practice managers.
There is no such thing as "making a possibility to do something".

No, you can't make a possibility. You can, however, create an opportunity.

Don't put a space before a comma or a question mark.

We simply don't have shops reserved for people of a certain nationality.

There are however shops which specialize in merchandise from a particular country, or perhaps only sell certain ethnic goods. If you want a specialized product, you have to go to that particular store for certain things.

For example, I have to visit a Korean grocery to find a particular corn silk tea I enjoy. I simply can't find it in any regular American grocery store, or even any of the other general Asian markets.

vogelvogelvogel3, is that perhaps the situation you're trying to express? Somebody wanting a product from a particular country which is only sold in certain stores that sell stuff from that particular country?

I think you're smart enought to know that If I would write "I am drinking chicken" you would correct in on "I am eating chicken"..

So If write "making a possibility" you should advice me, that there is "create an opportunity"

Whatever,

What about sentece:

Recently, doctors claim to create an opporunity of purchasing : ...XYZ and...

Thank you for the encouraging remark about forum members' intelligence. I would have to understand that when you said making a possibility, you meant creating an opportunity. None of the Anglophones who have responded to you guessed that. The phrase might be easier to guess in spoken conversation than it is in writing.

Note that the verb is to advise. "Advice" is a noun.

Whatever,

Recently, doctors claim to create an opporunity of purchasing : ...XYZ and...

Try to write that as a complete sentence. So far, I have no idea what you're trying to say.
