Does this sentence look natural to native speaker? Is there any other better way to rephrase this sentence. I feel my sentence is a Little redundant

Repetition like this very rarely looks/sounds right in prose, and even in poetry and song only the sounds normally repeat, rather than specific words.

I would probably write this as: [Specific people] can see how people from different places live their lives ... Where the square brackets might be Londoners, Southerners, Foreigners or something appropriate to your specific scenario.

    Shouldn't it be compare them (other people's lives)? Apr 20, 2020 at 15:04
  • @KateBunting Yes, you are right - I missed that bit. Could easily still have been it if the first half had been re-written differently of course.

You could substitute people from different place with an appropriate term like foreigner or outsider.

People can compare the lifestyle with their counterparts whom they consider foreign or strange.
