Having skills to form or make questions is an important part of getting fluency in English. Many of us may have good knowledge about English. But when it comes to making questions, most of us likely struggle. Therefore it is very very important to learn and know ways how to make questions.
Well, there are basically 4 key ways or methods to make questions. That means we can make question following these 4 ways :
First one is using auxiliary verbs like do, does, has, have, are, were and others.
Look at the question below :
- do you love me? In the sentence, auxiliary verb is do. It’s very easy.
The second way is applying question words like what, when, where, how and others, one can form questions easily. See the example below :
1. What do u want from me?
The third method is using tag questions to make questions. Look at the sentence below :
1. You are okay, aren’t you? In the sentence, the tag question is ‘aren’t you? Note that, in positive sentences we use negative tag and vis-à-vis.
And the fourth method to make questions is using intonation. Using this way, you can turn a positive sentence into a question. In that case, you just need to raise your voice or tone at the end of sentence. See the following sentence :
- You are coming to my house tonight? (Raise your voice slowly towards the end of the sentence to make this positive statement a question).
To sum up, practice more and more. Hopefully, your problems with making questions will surely be fixed. Good luck!
