Question Tags

(1) Question Tags are used to check or clarify information, or simply to involve the listener in a more interactive way.

(2) Question Tags consist of an auxiliary or a modal verb+ subject pronoun. The subject pronoun replays the subject of the main clause and agrees with the number, person and gender.

E.g. (a) Neha is selfish, isn't she?
(b) We had talked about it, hadn't we?

(3) If the main clause contains an auxiliary or modal verb, it is repeated in the tag.
E.g. (a) You have worked hard, haven't you?
(b) He didn't get it, did he?

(4) If there is no auxiliary or modal in the main clause, auxiliary is used.
E.g. (a) Neha lives in Pune, doesn't she?
(b) You found your pen, didn’t you?

Rules: -

(1) If the sentence is negative, then the question tag will be positive.


(2) If the sentence is positive, then the question tag will be negative.


(3) After question tag the question mark is necessary (?)


(4) Rewriting the sentence and then putting the question tags.


                             Exercises

Q.1. Fill in the blanks by putting proper question tags.

(1) They were cheap, _____________?

(2) I promise to double the fare, _____________?

(3) Spider webs are delicate yet very strong, _____________?

(4) It was a victory for all of us, _____________?

(5) She has it all, _____________?

(6) This strategy looks easy, _____________?

(7) He taught us physics, _____________?

(8) We had to borrow from a lady, _____________?

Everybody blames the education system & yet everybody wants to bring change.

In an attempt to bring change in the way our future is learning today at school, I request you to ask your English language teachers to take this test.

We have created this quiz to make it a little interesting.

Please share this quiz with the most confident, learned or fluent speaker you can find in India. We are 100% sure that only 1% would be able to identify the right pronunciation of these words.

It is not that these are difficult words or we have a different accent. The fact is that we just don’t know how to read. And on the top of it, we waste a lot of time memorizing spellings & pronunciation.

Once you’re done, please share your score & feedback. Also share this test with your English teachers, parents & friends. You can always check the performance & publish scores.

A good teacher is a good learner first and is always open to learning. This test is to encourage English teachers to explore the benefits of readmyscript program. It's an attempt to bring focus of educators on the importance of research in education. "I have got a test for you Ma'am" series of test are a real challenge for learners who rely on memorization skills. We want English teachers to explore the benefits of experiential learning through readmyscript outreach program.

If you like the things we do, please spread the word & enroll your kids for upcoming workshop in your city & refer it to your friends.

Happy learning!

I blame you, if you can’t tell me of the reasons.
I blame you, if you force me to memorize.
I blame you, if I score low.

Spellings are a torture for native & non-native speakers. Here in India, teachers want us to memorize spellings & pronunciation as well. However, teachers themselves don’t know of an easy way out.

On the top of it, they ask us to break words into smaller chunks & read. If we do that it hampers our pronunciation.

Mom also has this old technique of breaking words into smaller checks & reading. Phonics also doesn’t work. We don’t struggle with individual letter sounds to that extent. Our challenge is memorizing spellings & pronunciation.

Our challenge is how to identify the right pronunciation of words, how to develop automaticity in reading & memorizing spellings.

There is no interest in reading. I hate books because I hate reading.
So, I pretend that I am studying but I don’t.
I don’t because I don’t want to.
I don’t because it’s a torture and nobody understands.

They also pretend! Why do they refer to dictionary every time?
Teachers look up for the right pronunciation in dictionary and ask us to memorize. Why can’t they memorize themselves? And why do they have to refer to dictionary?

I also know that if I don’t read, I won’t learn.
It's their fault as well if they can't help.
It's their fault if they ask me to waste time & memorize spellings & pronunciation.

It's their fault if I don't enjoy reading.
It's their fault if I don't get good scores.

I blame you, if you can’t tell me of the reasons.
I blame you, if you force me to memorize.
I blame you, if I score low.
