I am not into extreme sport. Maybe because I haven't found a good chance to do that. The most impressive experience I have just when I try to do rafting.

Yes, you say "I don't think it is the case.", rather than "I think it is not the case.", if you think something is not the case.
That is, if 'think', 'suppose', 'believe' or 'imagine' is used to introduce a negative idea, you say 'I don't think...', 'I don't suppose...', etc. The usage is called 'transferred negation'.
You also say 'I don't think so.', 'I don't suppose so.', etc - in a negative 'short answer' structure.

My house is just a walking distance from my office, as I turned left at the corner of Aster Clinic opposite of…Continue
Yes, I mean you should use 'or' (not 'and') after a negative verb, for example, you say "I don't like football or basketball.", not "I don't like football and basketbll." - that is, 'or' means 'and not' here.
It's not uncommon for a learner to use 'and' in place of 'or' in a situation like that - I know they are trying to say they don't like both of them: both football and basketball.
It may have something to do with the…Continue
