    Hi, i'm studying AS Spanish and I'm currently writing an essay on sport. In my introduction, I'm trying to say: 'You don't need me to tell you that sport is a huge part of everyday life'... from which I would continue to talk about sport.

    Can anyone help me as to how best say this? I'm having a mind blank

    Many thanks!

    Clearly, you either live under a rock, or you are incapable of using Google Translate:

    No hace falta que te diga que el deporte es una parte enorme de la vida cotidiana.

    A less messy way of saying it would be:

    No es necessario que te digo que el deporte es una gran parte de la vida diaria/cotidiana.

    Usted no me necesita a decir que el deporte es una parte enorme de la vida cotidiana.
    or
    "No es necesario que les diga que el deporte es una gran parte de la vida cotidiana"

    These internet translators are not very reliable :P

    Of course I tried google translate, I'm just wary of unreliable translators.

    No hace falta que te diga que el deporte es una parte fundamental (or "piedra angular" if you want to sound clever) de la vida diaria (or "cotidiana"). I wouldn't directly address the reader in an essay though.

    You could use "It goes without saying" ("Ni que decir tiene") instead of "You don't need me to tell you"
