my english teacher asked our group memebers to do a survey about the teen's addiction to the Internet.i don't know how to start and i've no interest in this topic.in china,getting addicted to computer is very common,and it's no longer a big problem now,however.so i don't think there's any need to do such a research.anyway,i should finish my task during the summer vocation and submit my presentation to my teacher when the new term begins. can you give me some advice or can you tell me about your experience about getting addicted to computer.i'll be a good listener

Well, you can always make an assignment more interesting by altering your perspective/your angle. Now is the focus on this, more about the survey itself--or are we also looking for scholarly info. If it's all about the survey data, then ask people the basic questions: How much time do you spend on the internet? What else could you be doing with your time? How much time do you spend with family/friends? (It would also be beneficial if you could contact family members/friends and see if their computer usage has altered their behaviour.) Do you know what internet addiction is? Do you believe that it's a real problem? After you ask all the questions, consider surveying some professionals if possible: health professionals and professional businessmen and women--see if they see problems of addiction firsthand. Then, if your assignment has any academic or scholarly pursuits--do some research on the mental and neurological aspects of addiction--see if there's any research that would indicate that internet addiction is true addiction.
