How to make questions? (But also: who, what, where, when and why…)
Check this out:
The basic rule for asking questions is that you invert the order of the subject and the first auxiliary verb. Here are a few examples:
- It is raining. = Is it raining?
- She can speak English. = Can she speak English?
- He was cycling fast. = Was he cycling fast?
If there is no form of to be (am/is/are), or the word ‘can’, you have to use a form of ‘to do’.
- You speak fluent Dutch. = Do you speak fluent Dutch?
- She lives in London. = Does she live in London?
