Hi Joan,

The last sentence is wrong you could say -

Ce qui est important, c'est qu'on fasse du sport régulièrement.

Bonne continuation!

The last sentence is wrong, because you need the relative clause que instead of the the relative pronoun ce que. This can sometimes confuse students because que can have different functions in the structure of a sentence.

On fait du sport régulièrement, ce qui est important. -- Ce qui is the subject of the clause.

C'est important qu'on fasse du sport régulièrement. -- que is the conjunction starting the clause.

Why to ignore 1st part of her question and stick to its 2nd additional part after -"also"... Both answers....?

Hi Libor and Joan,

On fait du sport régulièrement, ce qui est important We exercise ( play sports/work out) regularly,  which is important

Il/C'est important qu'on fasse du sport régulièrement It's important to play sports /exercise/ work out regularly 

Different ways of saying the same thing.

C‘est excessif ce que vous dites là or C‘est excessif que vous dites là?

Also, do the following sentences have the same meaning? Which sentence is incorrect? Why?

On fait du sport régulièrement, ce qui est important.

C'est important qu'on fasse du sport régulièrement.

C'est important ce qu'on fasse du sport régulièrement.

Thank you
