    education/qualification

    Hi teachers,

    Are these sentences correct? If yes, tell me which one is better.

    What is your education?
    What is your qualification?

    Thank you.

    Re: education/qualification

    They are both rather unnatural. What is the context in which you want to use them?

    Re: education/qualification

    Who is asking these questions, and who is being asked to reply? Are they questions being asked in an interview?

    Re: education/qualification

    It may be; in an interview, a stranger. I just want to know what is the best way to ask?

    Re: education/qualification

    You could ask "What educational qualifications do you have?"

    Re: education/qualification

    Thank you.

    I wonder if I can use "What education do you have"?

    I am sure "What qualifications do you have" is correct. But I am not certain about the aforementioned sentence.

    Re: education/qualification

    That would be a very odd thing to ask a complete stranger.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
