1 Yes / No Questions Simple Present ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

2 We use the verb to be (am / is / are) to make yes / no questions that don´t have an action verb. We make this type of question when we want to know about facts / reality. Are you married? Yes, I am. Is he your brother? No, he isn´t. = No, he is not. Is she an artist? Yes, she is.

3 Subjective pronoun – I – You – He – She – It – We – You – They Verb to be – am – are – is – are

4 When we form the a question the verb to be, we need to invert the order of the subject of the sentence with the verb to be: Affirmative: He is from Brasilia. Yes/no question: Is he from Brasilia? Short answer:Yes, he is. / No, he isn´t Complete answer: Yes. He is from Brasilia Formula – Yes/No Questions with the verb to be: Verb to be + Subject + complement? Is Paul your friend? Are you American? Is your sister married? Formula – Yes/No Questions with the verb to be: Verb to be + Subject + complement? Is Paul your friend? Are you American? Is your sister married?

5 Can you make some yes /no questions with the words below? Example: Is she your sister? single married From Brasilia A dentist happy Your friend a doctor sad are is He she they You His brother

6 When we have an action verb, we need a ¨helper¨ (an auxiliary verb) to form the question – DO/DOES Do you play soccer? Yes, I do. Do they speak French? No, they don´t. = No, they do not. Does she drive to work? Yes, she does. Does he travel a lot? No, he doesn´t. = No, he does not.

7 Remember that when forming a question with the 3rd person singular (he/she/it) we use DOES, and the action verb goes back to its base form: He travel s every week. (the verb ¨to travel¨ is conjugated) Does he travel every week? (the verb travel is now in his base form – the infinitive without the ¨to¨) Let´s remember the conjugation of verbs in English: I travelstudyplay You travelstudyplay he/she/it travel s stud ies play s We travelstudyplay You travel studyplay They travelstudyplay

8 Formula – Yes/No Questions with an action verb: Do / Does+ Subject + action verb + complement? Does Paul play the guitar? Do you like chocolate? Does your sister work at IBM?
