What’s the grammar point that explains the から usage in this example? It’s not a てから, and I thought a sentence ending with から is supposed to be the cause of the following (or elided) sentence, but that would be “{I will do [it]} because {it’s fine that it’s summer vacation}”. That doesn’t seem to make sense here.

“It is even fine …” sounds really weird. Shouldn’t it be rather “it’s fine, even if …”?

Hey and welcome to the community forums :partying_face:
@Shinzo

I have changed the translation to:

" It is fine if you like to do sports."

I think it sounds much better in English, what is your opinion?

Thank you for the feedback!
Cheers,
