I am looking to create a survey for adult ESOL students to identify the most important content areas/topics for a new ESOL curriculum that will be used in classes taught by full-time teachers in New York City. The curriculum will be content based and behavioral change goal oriented.
My goal is to create a short, simple, and effective survey. I plan to use one of the frequency questions below with a list of topics below it and two open ended questions. The responses follow each question.
Which question below is best? Does following up a frequency question with a yes / no seem redundant? Will it annoy my respondent and negatively impact the quality of responses? Thank you in advance for your input.

1. How often do you think about these issues? (frequency 1 to 5 - never, seldom, sometimes, often, always).
2. How important are these issues to you? (frequency 1 to 5 - not at all, slightly important, moderately important, very important, extremely important)
3. Which of these topics do you want to know more about? (Yes / No)
Issues presented will be: public school system, starting a business, banking services, wire transfers, my rights as a worker, immigration, housing, legal services,
support services, relationship with my child, stress reduction, nutrition and exercise, choosing the right doctor, accessing medical services.
The final question will be open ended.
4. What are some of your biggest challenges as a parent in New York City?
5. What topics, not listed above, do you want to know more about?
