My customer: Btw, how do you proofread this sentence? 僕が書くとほとんどこうなるんだけど。
My customer: 「Let’s enhance your immunity to COVID-19.」 ジェンマならどう書く（言う）かな？
Me: What are you trying to say in Japanese? I mean, it makes sense but it doesn’t sound… very native?
My customer: 新型コロナウィルスに対する免疫を高めよう！
COVID-19 = 新型コロナウィルス(Shingata Corona Virus)
Immunity = 免疫(Men-eki)
Me: Instead of enhance, I would use “increase”. Let’s increase your immunity to Covid-19.
Me: I have heard folks say stuff like “boost immunity”. It is similar to enhance or increase.
