Schedules of the daily routine

I'm reading a book that teach how increase our productivity. One of the suggestions is to make a schedule of our daily routine, with the purpose of knowing how we are using our time.

Also, to help improve my writing, I started to do the schedule in English.

For now, it has been a challenge, because, even with the help of Google translator, many technical words or grammar don’t match accurately with the ideias that I want to express.

However, it’s a very good way to practice English, and I’m excited to continue learning the English language.

Great job! Especially with writing a schedule. It is something that I need to do as well. Yes the translator is not always grammatically correct, but it is then great practice for you to go back and correct the errors.

Fantastic post! Each day, I try to make a schedule of my daily routine. The problem I have is that I do not stick to/follow it. I need much more self-discipline haha!

I know what you mean about Google Translator too! Have you tried Linguee out of curiosity?: https://www.linguee.com/

I use it all the time, as it helps me to understand how certain complex words/phrases in the languages I learn are used in the correct context.

In addition to Faye's comments, I just have the following:

1. I'm reading a book that teach how increase our productivity - I'm reading a book that teaches us how to/ how we can increase our productivity.

2. many technical words or grammar don’t match accurately the ideas I want to express - don't accurately convey the ideas I want to express

Aliakbar, thank you for your corrections. I notices that you do not like use contractions (e.g. don't)  in the texts. I would like to know if is grammatically incorrect or just a choice of style?
