    1. How do you say 'after having been to..'??
      Is it 'apres avoir aller a l...,

      And also can you please translate these questions for me in french.
      I sort of do know how to say them in french but i don't think it is 100% correct. so i need confirmation.

      1. What do you do to earn pocket money?
      2.Did you help at home when you were younger?
      3.What do you spend your money on?
      4.What job would you like to do in the future?

      Thanks!

    Aller takes the auxiliary verb être (je suis allée etc.) so you'd need to say: après être allé(e). Note the use of allé, past participle, and not aller, infinitive!

    1. Que faites-vous pour gagner de l'argent de poche?
    2. Quand vous étiez plus jeune, est-ce que vous aidiez à la maison?
    3. Sur quoi dépensez-vous votre argent?
    4. Quel métier aimeriez-vous exercer à l'avenir?

    There are other ways to ask these questions - you might prefer using tu, for example.

    You can translate "after having" as above (après avoir/être + past participle) or as: ayant.. i.e. "ayant mangé mon déjeuner.."
    edit: of course here the avoir/être rule still applies, so if you were going to use Aller, you would say "Étant allé(e)(s).."

    Another, probably more familiar (for you) way to ask the first sentence in the second person singular (informal) is: "Qu'est-ce que tu fais pour gagner de l'argent de poche?". Or more simply and less formally: "Tu fais quoi pour..."
