1 Inversion Question Formation

2 Question formation options
There are three different ways to ask a question in French: Statement ? Tu parles français? Est-ce que + statement ? Est-ce que tu parles français? Inversion Parles-tu français?

3 Inversion Formation To make a question using inversion:
Locate the verb of your question Regarder Write the verb, in the right form, followed by a hyphen Regardez- Locate the subject of your question Vous Write the subject after the hyphen Regardez-vous

4 Practice Write these questions in French using inversion:
Do you all like math? Aimez-vous les maths? Do you sing? Chantes-tu? Do we study? Etudions-nous?

5 Inversion Annoyances If you want to use a name in your question, it has to come before the verb. Valérie est-elle en classe? Simone et Paulette étudient-elles? Moi et Claire sommes-nous intelligentes?

6 Inversion Annoyances If the subject starts with a vowel (il, elle, & on ONLY), you need to insert a t between the verb and subject to preserve the sound IF there is not already a t sound in the verb. Parle-t-elle espagnol? Etudie-t-il l’anglais? Fait-il attention en classe? There is already a t sound at the end of the verb Joue-t-elle au foot?

7 Inversion Annoyances Any question words (quand, pourquoi, etc.) come at the very front of the question. Pourquoi étudies-tu la biologie? Quand regardent-ils la télé? Avec qui danse-t-elle? Combien d’argent avons-nous?

8 Inversion Annoyances Any extra words just go on the end of the sentence. Fais-tu attention? Aimez-vous parler français? Pourquoi travaille-t-il au supermarché? Quand écoutent-elles de la musique? As-tu faim? Font-ils la cuisine?
