  • Hello, everyone.

  • And welcome to English with Lucy.

  • Today I've got a grammar lesson for you.

  • A lot of you have asked for this one because

  • I did mention going into further detail about this topic

  • in the previous video.

  • If you want to watch that one,

  • then you can click right here.

  • Today we're going to be talking about question tags.

  • If you learn how to appropriately

  • understand and use question tags,

  • You're going to...you're going to

  • a) sound more like a native speaker when you speak,

  • and b) be able to understand native speaker when they speak to you.

  • So it's really really important thing to learn.

  • So this lesson is going to help you

  • with your English grammar and your English speaking,

  • and your listening as well really.

  • But if you want to take your English to the next level,

  • then I cannot recommend italki enough.

  • I've been working with italki for over a year now.

  • And so many of my students have had such fantastic results.

  • It's an online language learning platform.

  • You can learn basically every language there is,

  • but you'll hate to learn English,

  • so imagine that's what you want to learn.

  • And italki has thousands of native teachers at incredible prices,

  • and they can help you become more fluent, more quickly.

  • You can book yourself in for a conversation lesson,

  • or a plan lesson any time of the day

  • with native teachers, non-native teachers, whatever you want.

  • And italki has very kindly given me an offer to give to you,

  • which is ten dollars worth italki credits

  • when you make your first ten-dollar purchase.

  • So it's like buy-one-get-one-free lessons.

  • All you have to to is click on the link below,

  • make your first purchase.

  • And then within 48 hours,

  • the credits will appear in your account.

  • Happy talking!

  • Right. Let's get started with the lesson.

  • So what are question tags?

  • Oh, that was one there.

  • So a question tag is a very short question

  • placed at the end of a statement.

  • They are used when asking for two things.

  • And these two things are

  • 1) confirmation

  • and 2) agreement.

  • So in order to better understand native speakers,

  • you need to listen to their intonation

  • when they use question tags.

  • So let's cover this first

  • and then move on to how they're formed.

  • So let's do this one.

  • It means, I know you like cake,

  • I'm just trying to confirm the fact that you like cake.

  • I'm not sure if you like cake.

  • I'm not sure about what the answer will be,

  • so I'm checking the fact again.

  • I want to know the answer I'm not sure.

  • I'm making conversation,

  • I'm confirming something that I've already known.

  • See the difference?

  • So it's somthing that's really really simple,

  • but I still have a lot of students that get really really confused with question tags.

  • So let's clarify this now.

  • Now, so those are the negative ones.

  • There are just a couple of exceptions.

  • The first exception is with "am".

  • which you can say,

  • but it sounds very very formal.

  • Now statements using

  • are all treated as negative statements.

  • So at first glance,

  • it might look like a positive statement,

  • and a positive question tag.

  • But you need to make sure

  • that you see the negative word before it.

  • OK, guys. Your homework today is

  • to write in the comments three statements with question tags.

  • Using what we've learnt today,

  • and I want you to make me laugh.

  • I want you to make them as funny as possible.

  • So see if you can do that.

Hello, everyone.
