The verb should be a gerund - to playing - though to using might work better or to playing with.

Hi! I'm going to [STRIKE]make[/STRIKE] carry out/do interviews in English, so I would like you to help me [STRIKE]and[/STRIKE] see if [STRIKE]it[/STRIKE] my questions [STRIKE]is[/STRIKE] are grammatically correct.



- How old are you?
- Are children in your age group used to playing with / using computers?
- Where would it be? Do you mean "Where is the computer located?" or "Where do they use computers? ie school/home etc?"
- What do you find [STRIKE]insteresting[/STRIKE] interesting [STRIKE]in[/STRIKE] about computers?
- When are you allowed to used the computers in (in BrE, "at") school?
- How good is the computer knowledge among your teachers?
- Would you like to tell me about computers in classes? I don't know what you mean by this question.
- [STRIKE]Is there[/STRIKE] Do you have access to the internet at home and at school?
- [STRIKE]What are the most common things to do when using internet?[/STRIKE] What do you do most frequently on the internet?
- [STRIKE]How much is the internet-price?[/STRIKE] How much does your internet access cost?
- In what way do you think computers will affect your future?
- What do you know about computers?
- How did you [STRIKE]get to know[/STRIKE] learn how to use computers?
- For what do you use the computers in school?
- What differences are there between education[STRIKE]s[/STRIKE] with computers and education[STRIKE]s[/STRIKE] without computers? What are the pros and cons?
- Do you think computer knowledge is important for the future?
- Why?
- What do you think about the lessons/lectures?
- Would like to work with computers when you’ve grown up?
- What do you find most [STRIKE]insteresting[/STRIKE] interesting?
- Why do you think I wanted to teach you [STRIKE]basis[/STRIKE] basic knowledge of computers?
- How [STRIKE]would[/STRIKE] will you use the knowledge you just gained?

I have made several amendments. I'm not sure that you mean "playing with" computers. Even if you are playing a computer game, we still say "using computers". I'm not really clear on the question about cost - how many children know how much it costs to have internet access at home or school? Or do they have to pay per session?

Check your spelling of "interesting" - you added an "s" both times.

We say "education", not "educations".
