Presentation on theme: "QUESTION TAGS."— Presentation transcript:


2 What are question tags? Question tags are short questions at the end of a sentence, either requesting information (when the voice goes up) or inviting agreement (when the voice goes down). Positive tags are normally used with negative sentences, and negative tags with positive sentences: You don’t live here, do you? John enjoyed the meal, didn’t he?

3 As well as do and did (with present and past simple), other auxiliary verbs are used in question tags: He isn’t very friendly, is he? I can park here, can’t I? You’ve eaten all the cake, haven’t you? Be careful with have and have got: She has a nice car, doesn’t she? She has got a nice car, hasn’t she?

4 The question tag after an imperative is will you, and after Let’s it is shall we:
Don’t forget to ring, will you? Let’s pay the bill, shall we? Be careful with: She’d rather stay at home, wouldn’t she? You’d better have a rest, hadn’t you? I am late, aren’t I?
