    In Vietnamese, everybody uses rarely word 'sử dụng',it is usually a noun, we use word 'dùng' as a synonym with it.
    Ex:
    'Tôi đang dùng nó' instead 'Tôi đang sử dụng nó'

    In addition to Alice's opinions, use should use this structure "dùng sth (để do sth)". Here, "để" means "to or in order to".

    For example:
    Tôi sử dụng "Rosetta Stone" ĐỂ học tiếng Việt. --- I use "Rosetta Stone" to learn Vietnamese.

    Tôi sử dụng máy tính ĐỂ viết. --- I use a computer to write.

    Otherwise, your sentences are right

    In South Viet Nam, people often use the word "xài" or "dùng" instead of "sử dụng" in real conversation.
