Questions are possibly the best way to start conversations and improve your speaking. But can you form them correctly in English? We’ll help you ask better questions on this episode of Aprender Inglés con Reza y Craig.
They start with an AUXILIARY or MODAL
Can you speak Spanish? – CAN + subject (you) + verb (speak)
Do you live in Valencia? – DO + subject (you) + verb (live)
Did you have any pets? – DO + subject (you) + verb (have)
Have you ever visited Disneyland?
Should everyone vote in elections?
Must we eat potatoes again today, Paddy?
Will you help me, please?
We can also ask yes/no questions with the verb TO BE + subject
Are you English?
Are you hungry?
Is Coco hungry?
Were you at home last night?
Will you be home for tea, darling?
Have you been here long?
The answer is information, not yes/no.
What + NOUN
How + ADJECTIVE/ ADVERB/ QUANTIFIER
(Quantifiers: much; many; little; few; etc.)
Where do you live? (WH word (Where) + auxiliary verb (do) + subject (you) + verb (live) – Where do you live?
When do you get up?
What was it? (WH question with the verb TO BE)
Where were you born?
When’s your birthday?
Whose book did you borrow?
Which has she chosen – the red or blue paint?
Questions with How can add an extra word –
How OLD (ADJ.) are you?
HOW QUICKLY (ADV.) can you run?
How MUCH (QUANTIFIER) is it?
What TIME (NOUN) does the match start?
What NATIONALITY (NOUN) are they?
Ask one YES/NO question and one WH question on the following topics:
