Content: To revise question tags.
Questions tags are used to get the person we are talking to, to confirm that what we are saying is correct. The statement is turned round so that the subject follows the auxiliary/modal verb, like thus ‘We’re going, aren’t we?
If the statement is positive, the question tag is negative e.g. We’re very happy, aren’t we?
If the statement is negative, the question tag is positive e.g. we’re not very happy, are we?
Sometimes, the statement does not use auxiliary for example, we may say:
They ate rice and beans last Thursday.
If we want that statement confirmed, we have to supply the auxiliary by imagining that they are takes the form they did eat. Now it is possible to form a question tag:
They ate rice and beans last Thursday, didn’t they?
