2 Forming questionS in French
Comment? Quand? Pourquoi? À quelle heure? Qui?

3 TAG Questions - Est-ce que
Est-ce que, literally means "is it that," can be placed at the beginning of any affirmative sentence to turn it into a question:    Est-ce que tu aimes la pizza ?    Do you like pizza?   Est-ce que tu joues au foot ?    Do you play soccer?   

4 Intonation Questions This is SIMPLE!!! Intonation means the SOUND of YOUR VOICE!! A very simple but informal way to ask yes/no questions is to raise the pitch of your voice while pronouncing any sentence: Tu aimes la pizza ? Do you like pizza? Tu joues au foot ? Do you play soccer?

5 Inversion Questions Inversion A more formal way to ask questions is with inversion: switch (or invert) the position of the conjugated verb and subject pronoun and join them with a hyphen:    Aimes-tu la pizza?    Do you like pizza?    Veux-tu voir un film ?    Do you want to see a movie?

6 “NAG” Questions - A NAG question is an affirmative statement followed by the expression: n’est-ce pas Tu aimes la pizza, n’est-ce pas? Tu parles français, n’est-ce pas? Tu sais comment nager, n’est-ce pas? Vous pouvez étudier le français, n’est-ce pas?

7 Using question words: Comment- How/What Qui - Who/Whom Où- Where Pourquoi- Why Que (Qu’)- What Quand- When À quelle heure- At what time Use these in the following ways for information questions: Où est-ce que tu habites? Or Où habites-tu?

8 C’est à vous! It’s your turn!
See if you can write the following sentences in French: Why do you like pizza? – Pourquoi aimes-tu la pizza? When do you play soccer? - Quand joues-tu au foot? What is your father like? (hint: DO NOT use “aime”) Comment est ton père? Where do you go to school? Où vas-tu à l’école? Who is your friend? Qui est ton ami?

9 Special Questions: Some questions use an interrogative adjective, like quel (which has 4 forms). And still others just are what they are and you just have to know them… Quel âge as-tu? - How old are you? Quelle heure est-il? - What time is it? C’est quel mois? - What month is it? Quel jour est-ce? – What day is it? Quelle est la date? - What is the date?
