本当にそうだね。________ 読めないんですから

can someone give me an example of using さえhere, please.

Page 88

1:ワープロは便利なのです。

2:そうですね。でも、ワープロ を使うと漢字を_____から、漢字が書けなくなるでしょうね。

Can someone give me an idea for what to put using verb + ないで済む

Hi! I just stumbled upon your question while randomly browsing "japanase learning" communities in livejournal. I hope this can help you.

さえ means "even." So, if you say "書いた自分でさえ読めないんです。" It means "[the person] can't even read [his/her] own hand writing."

I hope i remember it's usage correctly. :)
