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.

sorry my mistakes

Tuesday, June 30th 2009

    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

    Saturday, March 25th 2017

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 ?

Tuesday, June 30th 2009

    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,

    Tuesday, June 30th 2009

      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.

      Thursday, March 11th 2010

      thank youuuu
      i was really in trouble with these sentences

      Friday, August 21st 2015

    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.

    Friday, May 27th 2016

    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.

    Friday, May 27th 2016

      Sorry! There are***

      Saturday, May 28th 2016

    yeah i have the same question why do we use aren’t I ? and not amn’t I ? I’am confused

    Tuesday, July 26th 2016

hi dear sir
i hope u are all fine and doing well
i want to ask you if it is possible to send me some english advance videos to my address.
Thanks in advance

Tuesday, June 30th 2009

    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.

Friday, October 23rd 2009

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

Friday, October 23rd 2009

    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?

hi teacher how are you.
it was great lesson.and i got much information from it.but teacher what should i do to improve my english speaking.and to get fluency in my english.it is very upset situation for me.i have done MBA.please guide me.

Wednesday, December 23rd 2009

    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.

    Friday, February 5th 2010

      thanx Alex for the useful information

Thursday, May 20th 2010

Friday, May 21st 2010

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.

Sunday, May 30th 2010

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

Tuesday, July 6th 2010

    “Viet Nam” is the more modern spelling that the people of that country now use.

    Thursday, July 8th 2010

Alex, i just want to comment that you made this lesson VERY CONFUSING!!!!

I don’t mean to be rude or anything but to me it is very confusing.

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

Monday, August 30th 2010

Monday, September 6th 2010

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?

Friday, September 10th 2010

thanks, your class was really clear.

Sunday, October 3rd 2010

Dear Alex:
thanks a lot for the lesson. I hope next time you give us Rhythm and intonation

Wednesday, November 10th 2010

dear sir,you doing really a great job.i have one question will you please explain idioms. hope so you will help me in this,because teacher does not explain like you.thak you so much.

Thursday, November 25th 2010

Thank you.

Tuesday, December 7th 2010

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.

Thursday, December 23rd 2010

    “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.

    Sunday, January 9th 2011

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

Thursday, December 23rd 2010

hi ms alexe you are good becouse your lessons very interesting but i have problem in enghiche please tell me how to speak enghlich thank you i wish more

Sunday, December 26th 2010

Sunday, March 27th 2011

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

Sunday, April 3rd 2011

    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!

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

Hi Alex,
Will you please let me know about, where should I use Noun,Adverb and Adjective in the sentences

Hello Alex,
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

Monday, May 30th 2011

    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
    use falling intonation when you think the listener will agree.

    Friday, October 28th 2011

      Thank you for your answers.

      Sunday, October 30th 2011

My best wishes to you and engvid team.

Saturday, August 6th 2011

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.

Monday, August 8th 2011

    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.

    Wednesday, August 17th 2011

      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…

      Friday, April 27th 2012

        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

        Friday, April 27th 2012

          Hi again Alex, I promise it’s my last one question for today ! lol ! I come back to you about tag questions, would you like advise me about using let, I use let in the question and shall in the tag, for example: let me know now, shan’t you ? or shan’t I ? I’m affraid that is wrong or the worst that doesn’t exist in English language !!! All the best to you !

          Friday, April 27th 2012

hi sir Alex :)

Thank you for this lesson. But please could you tell me how to answer a “tag question”? I’m so confused :(

Please please explain Sir Alex..Thanks a lot!

Thursday, November 3rd 2011

    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!”

    Monday, November 28th 2011

      ohh okay :)

      Thank you for the answer Sir Alex! :) You’re such a kind and great teacher!!! More power!!!!

Alex, I love you!
You know this tag questions drive me crazy, I’m so glad to see your videos again. I would like to know if you can recommend me more videos or information related to this subject. And other thing that I would like to find here is all about the pronunciation of the abbreviations of “would” with the different times you know what I mean? I still cannot understand when people talk to me using this abbreviation words. Hope you can help me. Thank you so much! :)

Sunday, December 2nd 2012

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????

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    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!

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

thank you sir alex

Sunday, December 9th 2012

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?

Wednesday, December 19th 2012

    “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.”

    Wednesday, December 19th 2012

      Well,thank you.

      Thursday, December 20th 2012


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

Friday, January 18th 2013

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.

Saturday, February 16th 2013

Sir, my biggest problem is my English speaking ability …i mean i know the grammar but i can’t speak and i have no body to practice English speaking . Could you give some tips , how can i improve my speaking ?

Monday, February 18th 2013

Hi sir Alex, thank you so much for your video lesson on tag question. Actually am preparing for my thesis and its all about tag question, it really helps me, now i understand its proper usage. i hope you can help me more. Thank you.

Sunday, February 24th 2013

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

Thanks Alex !

Friday, March 8th 2013

I have not understanded well the tag question 6, why we should use “aren’t I” by the negative form for I am next?

Tuesday, March 26th 2013

Hi Alex,

Thank you so much for your lesson, especially, the last example: Yes, I am from Vietnam.

I am look forward to hearing from you again.

Best regards,


Monday, June 24th 2013

Alex, you are super!!!

Thursday, June 27th 2013

Thank you very much for your very clear explanation.

Thursday, July 11th 2013

i have done this exercise.i got 6 out off 8.i am very happy.but i have 1 doubt.why we change i am change into are not.please help me

Monday, August 12th 2013

    According the quizz it’s an exception in the grammar rules. That question was tricky to me.

    Friday, August 23rd 2013

Thank you, teacher Alex

Tuesday, August 27th 2013

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 …

Wednesday, September 25th 2013

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

Thursday, September 26th 2013

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 :)

Sunday, October 6th 2013

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,…”.

Friday, January 10th 2014

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

    Friday, January 10th 2014

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

Sunday, March 23rd 2014

thank you so much, I come from Viet Nam :)

The bag is too heavy to lift, isn’t it?
Why can’t we say ” is it? ”

Wednesday, November 2nd 2016

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) :)

Sunday, November 20th 2016

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

    Sunday, November 20th 2016
