  6. 6. TAG questions: Now that we know the basic components of forming TAG questions, let’s look at an example. To form TAG questions you must be able to tell whether the beginning part is a positive or negative statement and be able to replace the subject with a subject pronoun. Here’s an example: Negative tag The test is tomorrow, isn’t it? Positive statement Notice how the beginning part is a positive statement and we are talking about the test. The “tag” is then a negative statement and the subject pronoun “it” replaces the test.
  7. 7. Why use TAG questions? In English there are several reasons we use TAG questions. We may use TAG questions: 1. to confirm information.

To ask for agreement was That test was difficult, wasn’t it?  Here we are asking someone if they agree with our thought that the test difficult 3. To make sure something is truthful The game is at 9 o’clock, isn’t it?  Here we think the game is at 9 o’clock but want to make sure that the information is accurate.
  8. 8. Now that we know why we use TAG questions, how do we form TAG questions? 1. identify the auxiliary verb, if no auxiliary is present then use “do” 2. if the auxiliary verb is positive, then you make the TAG negative. 3. if the auxiliary verb is negative, then you make the TAG positive. You live in Spain, don’t you? You are Spanish, aren’t you? You are not Spanish, are you
