Unhappy Hello !! Could someone help me to answer a interview in english ?? (native english)

Hello !!! I'm spanish and I'm looking for some native english speakers, I must finish a work, I have written an interview (nothing special) and with the answers I will finish my work writing a report speech, but first I need to find a native that doesn't mind answering my questions, If someone can help me !! I'm quite desperate the answers can be short and invented, It really doesn't matter, I only need to have the interview to start my report speech.

Thank you so much in advance !!
Sandra

Hello and welcome. I'm not quite sure what you are looking for. Do you want us to correct you list of questions? Do you want us to invent answers for them?

The list of questions was corrected by my teacher (then I suppose that don't contain any error), my teacher told us to make an interview and then to find some native english speaker ready to answer our questions, to make later a report speech, but If nobody can help me I will need to answer the questions by myself and find someone that can correct them.

Maybe is to much to ask, I will invent the questions, and hope that some native help me to correct the answers.
But the answers must be 100% correct as if a native english speakers answered them Can anyone correct me the answers, please ?? thanks !!

I made some corrections above. Items in red and crossed out are for removal. Items in green I added. The green doesn't show up too well, so look closely for those items. Items in purple/violet are notes. I ran out of time making the corrections to yours, but I will come back later and answer your questions as myself. That should be faster, but I still wanted to help you with your English.

Thank you so much to you too !!! well, that was the idea of the teacher to find some native english speaker ready to answer the questions, but I found that I will go faster if I write the answers and someone help me to correct them hehehe but if you can answer my interview would be great !! Thank you so much !!

About the Report speech
for example:

He said: "It's cold".
He said it was cold

I need to do the Indirect speech.
