    ...
    I'd be very surprised if anyone had the time or interest to answer this. Why should anyone spend 2 or 3 hours answering a bunch of questions in order to get a job teaching who knows who who knows where for who knows how long on who knows what terms?

    Or are you simply asking whether the questions are grammatical?
