1.How often do you use the computer?
I use it on a daily basis. I mean, I can’t go a day without it now because I use it to do almost everything, like searching for information, keeping in touch with friends, reading news and loosening up. My computer is a big part of my life now.

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.

5.What do you usually use your computer for?
你通常都用电脑来做什么?这个题并不难，总-分-细的答题模式，相信大家也不陌生，磊哥想说的是在互联网时代，电脑已经不仅仅是一台独立的机器，更多时候我们使用电脑都是与网络有关的，我们做的很多活动也都是因为网络才得以完成。所以我们可以这样作答：Well,with computers,I can do pretty much thing,like checking and writing e-mails,watching online movies,shopping and chatting online,searching for information...whatever you name it.And recently,I use computer to search information a lot,simply because I am to graduate from university and I need to finish my dissertation with a huge amount of information.
