En esta lección vamos a mirar como formular dos tipos de preguntas. ¡Al final de la lección, vas a poder realizar muchas preguntas en inglés!

Where do you live?

This question is made up of four parts:

Basic questions usually appear in this order. Learn the order! (Preguntas básicas normalmente aparecen en este orden. ¡Tienes que aprender el orden!)

We are now going to look at a different type of question, the ‘yes/no’ question.

(Ahora vamos a mirar otro tipo de pregunta, la pregunta ‘yes/no’).

Here are a few examples from the dialogue:

Do you swim every Saturday morning?
Do you go shopping with your sister?

We call them yes/no questions because the answer to these questions is always ‘yes’ or ‘no’. (Las llamamos ‘yes/no questions’ porque la respuesta a la pregunta es siempre ‘yes’ o ‘no’).

.

3.a. What are the answers to the following yes/no questions in the dialogue?

.

3.b. We are now going to look at how to form these questions.

The form of the yes/no question is:

Auxiliary Verb (do) + Subject Pronoun + Verb

You can identify this parts in the questions below:

Do you swim every Saturday morning?
Do you go shopping with your sister?
Do you have a lot of homework to do at the weekend?

.

3.c. Put the following yes/no questions into the correct order.

.

4.- Practice

Answer the questions with your own answers.

Do you play tennis?

Do you eat chocolate?

Do you like learning English?

- Yes I do / No I don't

Keep up the good work!.
