Question Practice

Quite a few of my learners have difficulties asking questions the right way in English. That’s because there are several ways to ask questions in French but only one in English. It’s not OK to use a positive sentence with a rising intonation like you would in French:

Vous êtes anglais? You are English?

Instead you should put the auxiliary, or ‘be’ before the subject:

êtes-vous anglais? : Are you English?

The use of auxiliaries is a hard concept for French speakers to grasp.

Vous aimez le chocolat? Do you like chocolate?
