2.Who taught you how to use a computer?
Well, my memory's a bit sketchy now. I think it must have been my dad. If I remember correctly, he taught me how to type when I was a 4th grader. I remember thinking it was super difficult and I didn't want to learn it at all, but my dad told me that typing would be an essential skill in the future. He was right.

3.Do you think computers have changed your life a lot?
Yes, definitely. The computer has changed my life dramatically. For starters, when I was a child, I used to play with my little friends outside every day and we always had a ball together. However, now, in my downtime, I just like to surf on the internet and social networking sites allow me to know what my friends are doing. Plus, I don’t even need to leave my apartment anymore when I want to buy something. With a click of the mouse, I can buy anything on the internet.

Nowadays, pretty much everything.

They certainly make my life a lot easier most of the time- I mean banking and shopping online is so much quicker and more convenient than having to actually go to a bank or shop and do it all physically. I can achieve more in my life thanks to computers - all that information is instantly accessible on the internet, which makes so many things easier and I suppose the biggest impact of all is the way computers have really changed the way we live, the way we interact with each other and how we do things.
14.What computer skill(s) would you like to learn?
