Question tags

Question tag are short questions we use at the end of the statements.

We usually use them in spoken English, when we want to:
 check if something is true
 ask for confirmation or invite people to agree with us.


Structure

auxiliary  verb (do/does; don't/doesn't)
                 (is/are/isn't aren't)
    (did)
                         ➕  

subject (I/you/she/he/it/we/you/they)

                         ➕ 

                         

You have to pay attention to the sentece. You have to check the tense (present, past) and the subject.

  ➽ A positive statement is followed by a negative question tag:
          He is your brother, isn't he?
          You play the guitar, don't you?
          It was funny, wasn't it?

➽ A negative statement is followed by a positive question tag:
          You aren't hungry, are you?
          She didn't go to the hospital, did she??


You can visit this website and watch a video. You can do some exercises too (I recommend to you multiple choice and gap fill typing)

 Is it easier now? I hope so 😉

Indefinite pronouns

We use indefinite pronouns to refer to people or things without saying exactly who or what they are. 

We use:  ⏭ pronouns ending in -body or -one for people. 
                 For example: someone, anyone, no one.
             
              ⏭  pronouns ending in -thing for things. 
              For example: something, anything, nothing. 


Examples: I can't see anything (no puedo ver nada).
                There's something on the table (hay algo sobre la mesa -pero no 
                concretamos qué). 
                Have you eaten anything in the last three hours?
                Nobody was waiting outside the building (Nadie estaba esperando 
                fuera del edificio) 
                Does anybody know the answer?


  • This video will help you a lot:

  • And finally, a catchy song:

UNIT 9

  • Opposites. 
Do you remember opposites? Let's review with this video: 




  • Modal verbs:
    Don't be afraid. Modal verbs sound "weird" but you already know one of them: "can" 😎.

We are going to study other modal verbs. We use modals to show if we believe something is      certain, possible or impossible.

   
We use could, may, might to express possibility. Something is possible,but we are not sure. 

  1. It may be true (Maybe it's true, but we don't know) 
  2. It may be John (Imagine you're waiting for John and somebody is knocking at the door).  
  3. If we don't pay attention, we could get lost (Imagine we are visiting a place and we are distracted. Perhaps we could get lost -it's a possibility).




Two words that can help you:
- Perhaps: quizá, tal vez
- Maybe: quizás.
