I have working with some american guys and all the time when the guys talk to me, they’re using this tag questions.
Was nice this vídeo.

Thanks
sorry my mistakes

Rey

    I agree with you Rey;tag questions are more frequently used in spoken English rather than in written language. I think, it is because they help you to communicate your ideas with ease in informal contexts.

    Bye for now.

    Iam= Aren’t I

    Profile photo of kotoz kotoz

I’m back. I got stucked in these 2 questions:

1- I am next, _______? => • aren’t I?
Why i have to use Aren’t ????

2- I am not going to pass the test, _______? = > am I?
For me this one make sense, but the first one, not.!!!!

can you help me ?

Rey

    I think its just rule and you have to remember it. Its also mentioned in the answer of the quiz:

    “In this exception, we use “aren’t” as the negative for “I am.” Remember this!”

    Hope it helps,

    Profile photo of Attitude.first Attitude.first

      yes, that’s right, because it’s a kind of heavy if you said “amn’t I ?”.
      however, there’s a exception concerning areas. if you’ve been in Irland or Scotland before, you’ve probably heard people saying: ” amnt’ I ?”, because that is how they use to said there.

    I have the same question from Rey: I’m back. I got stucked in these 2 questions:

    1- I am next, _______? => • aren’t I?
    Why i have to use Aren’t ????

    can you help me ?

    When the statement is affirmative, the tag is negative. When the statement is negative, the tag is affirmative. Use the same verb or modal in the tag question as in the main statement. In order to explain this more deeply, I’m going to give you some examples, extracted from my English learning method (Pearson Edition). For instance: I’m presenting my report at 2:00, aren’t I? However, I’ve had the curiousity to extent this grammar use and form, and I found that the correct response is: I’m presenting my report at 2:00, am I not? Turns out that this negative tag is very formal and accurate English, is the one that we’re supposed to use, but we don’t. Neither the learners, nor the americans. Notwithstanding, both of them can be used and it is correct.
    Cheers,

    By the way, there’s two forms to pronunciate this grammar form. 1) Rising intonation usually indicates that the speaker is confirming the correctness of information. For instance: People use first names here, don’t they? –> Rising, quite strong and fast.

    2) Falling intonation usually indicates that the speaker expects the listener to agree. For instance: People use first names here, don’t they? <— Falling, quite smoothly.

      Sorry! There are***

      Profile photo of AlejandroGutz AlejandroGutz

    Hi abdullah,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to send lessons in advance. They take time to upload to the Internet, and must be edited, which takes some time. The site updates at a steady level, so I hope you will continue to enjoy the lessons provided here.

edona

Alex please can you explain me again He has a car,doesn’t he? why is not hasn’t he I don’t understand please write me

edona

    You use “doesn’t he” in the tag if you’re using the simple present in the first part of the statement, and you are using the base form of a verb. However, if you use the present perfect, you must use “hasn’t he”. Here are some examples of when to use “doesn’t ____”:

    He goes to school, doesn’t he?
    She swims on Sundays, doesn’t she?
    He has a phone, doesn’t he?
    We have a test today, don’t we?

    Here are some examples of when to use “hasn’t ____”:

    He has gone to school, hasn’t he?
    She has gone swimming today, hasn’t she?
    He has slept, hasn’t he?
    We have written a test today, haven’t we?

Ali

Profile photo of great_wishm great_wishm

    Hi Ali,

    To obtain fluency in any language you must use it every day. It also helps if you are in an environment where the language is always being spoken. Listen to radio, watch TV, read books, and try to have conversations in English as well. You can even begin a daily journal where you only write in English.

Thanks Alex about the wonderful lesson . But
I have a question if you don’t mind .
what if the sentence begin with imparative verbs e.g : open the door , ……………..?
and if the sentence start with negative e.g:
Don’t get out, …………………?
or let’s go out , ……………….?
Please give the answers.
I’d be appreciated.

I think you misspelled a word.
It should be Vietnam, not “Viet Nam”.

online chat or communicate with you and other teachers as well.
Awating your reply in order to take next step and determine further just for improve my english which is really compulsory in this era.

One more thing, could you assist to get the lesson from very beggining, in other words, lesson in sequence from beggining to ending.

Thanks & regards

Hi alex, thanks for your useful lesson.i basically understand tag question but last week i did a test that was vey confusing.Here they are:
I believe he has given up smoking/(isn’t he?)(don’t i?)(hasn’t he?)
So you think he’ll be back before november?(shall he?)(will he?)(do you?)
Now is hardly the time to tell me you didnt need a test at all(did you?)(is it?)(isn’t it?)
So, which one should i choose? and because what?

Alex, I think some thing is wrong with question 6. It says
” I am next……?
when I chose the answer of ” Amn’t I,” it says I am wrong, and gives me ” Aren’t I” as a right answer.

H.O

    “Amn’t I” does not exist in the English language. When you use a tag question that uses the subject “I,” you must follow it with “aren’t I?” It’s a bit of an exception.

could you please explain for me why “aren’t I” is right and my answer is wrong.

What is the tag for the sentence- I know you did the work, ……?

Md. Hasan

    Interesting question. To me, the first response is “I know you did the work, don’t I?”

    “I know you did the work, didn’t you?” doesn’t make grammatical sense, because the subject is “I” and not “you.”

    Thanks for the great example!

I’m Lan Bui, a Vietnamese. I have just seen your lesson about tag question.My notes is at our voice must down at end of tag. Could you please to teach about intonation of any sentenses (WH-question,Yes/no questions, sentenses with so many clauses,..)?

Thank you very much,
Lan Bui

Profile photo of lanbui lanbui

    hi lan:
    the intonation of tag questions
    use rising intonation when you’re not sure if the listener will agree,and you expect an answer
    and
    use falling intonation when you think the listener will agree.

hi alex! i have a question for u. please tell me about tag question
present possessive always have “do or does” in tag question or can we also use “has or have” in it? please info me about these.

pawan

    I’m not sure that I fully understand your question. Are you asking about present progressive sentences?

    “They’re seeing a movie later, aren’t they?”

    Or you might be asking about do/does and has/have.

    You have seen the movie, haven’t you?
    You have a dog, don’t you?

    Use “have” when the sentence is present perfect, and “do” if it’s in the simple tense.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Hello Alex, would you light my mind about using have in the tag questions. I understand that I use have if the sentense is in present perfect, so can I use have if the sentence is in past perfect ? for example: You had seen the movie, hadn’t you ? Is it correct ? Thanks for your reply…

      Profile photo of mino681 mino681

        Sorry I have few questions to you Alex, it’s about tag questions. If I use let in the question,I use shall in the tag ! for example: Let’s go out, shall we ? Let’s not go out, shan’t we ? are they correct ?? If I use imperative form, the tag is always positive with will, for example: Don’t forget, will you ? negative question and positive tag… Stop that noise, will you ? positve question and positive tag…Are they correct or wrong !!! I need your help, many thanks

Please please explain Sir Alex..Thanks a lot!

    A tag question is basically a ‘yes/no’ question, so you can answer it like any other question of this type.

    “It’s hot today, isn’t it?”
    “Yeah, it is. I can’t breathe outside!”

amn’t I?

Thank you Alex, but I couldn’t understand this one, as I clicked amn’t I?,
but the right answer was ‘aren’t I?’

I got stucked in these 2 questions:

1- I am next, _______? => • aren’t I?
Why i have to use Aren’t inspite of am i ????

2- Mr Edwards has a guitar? =>. doesn’t he?
why u have use doesn’t inspite of hasn’t he????

    If the statement is positive, the tag has to be negative.

    “I am next, aren’t I?” (“I am” is negative, so you need the negative in the tag)

    For your second question, your sentence is in the present simple form.

    “Mr. Edwards has a guitar.”

    What’s the oppositve of this sentence? “Mr. Edwards doesn’t have a guitar.” We never say “Mr. Edwards hasn’t a guitar.”

    Knowing that, the auxiliary you need is “doesn’t,” and not “hasn’t.”

    I hope this helps!

thank you sir alex

Hi Alex,
U said that ” He has a car” is present simple. But u know that “has” is only used in perfect tense. Could u plz explain?

Ihsan

    “Has” is not only used in present perfect. You can also use it to talk about possession in the past, present, or future.

    “I had a pet fish when I was a kid.”
    “I have an iPhone.”
    “I’ll have a house when I’m older.”

      Well,thank you.

Hi,

I have a question about “shall”. I saw there were questions without answer. So when to use shall/shan’t in question tag?

Marci

Hi, what is the tag of this sentence:
i’m not too old to run,…………?
…is (too…to) negative…so is it right to give affirmative tag.in the above sentence?
….thanks in advance.

Thank you, teacher Alex

Profile photo of bummia bummia

Hallo Alex, I know you have already explained it but i still do not understand why “the negative” to “I am” is “aren’t I” ….. not “amn’t I” – does this form exist at all? or it is just an exception and the form “AMN’T I” isn’t used – it simply does not exist …

hello sir,thank you so much it was an intersting lesson, wasn’t it?

Profile photo of kaouthar kaouthar

About No.6…
I’ve thought that “am” negative form was “ain’t” though…. So I was confused because it didn’t have my answer. I see…”aren’t” is correct, isn’t it?
Thank you for your lesson :)

I understand Q.7. Although it’s conpused to international students, native speakers use like that, so we’d better memorise that kind of expresion.
It’s like “If I were you…”, not “If I was you,…”.

Profile photo of Matilda03 Matilda03

    Sorry for my grammar mistake. -_-;;
    It’s conpusing to international students.

Please could you explain if I could use “right” or “huh” in these tag questions?

Hi Alex,
The bag is too heavy to lift, isn’t it?
Why can’t we say ” is it? ”
as it means ” Someone can’t lift the bag.”
as well as ( never, hardly )

The 5th description says, “You’re means you’re.” The S at the end of “mean” a bit confused me.
But I guess the “You’re” is act like a third person, so
The word of “you’re” means…
I am right, aren’t I? (voice goes up) :)

    “You’re” is acting like a tird person in this case.
