Worksheet Overview

Question tags are questions that are added to the end of a statement.


boy with football


You like football, don't you?

We're going to watch Arsenal on Saturday, aren't we?

Jack's coming too, isn't he?


We use question tags a lot when we are talking to each other, but they are not appropriate in formal, written language. In formal situations we need to structure questions in a different way.


You've posted the letter, haven't you? (informal)

Have you posted the letter? (formal)


post a letter


In this activity, you can practise identifying question tags and thinking about when they can be used.
