How do you ask questions?

Hello Friend,

How are you today? I hope you are in a good mood because this is your English lesson number 10 -- congratulations! You have learned a lot since you enrolled in our online course and I'm sure you will keep up the great work. So what's on the agenda today? Well, let's start by reviewing the question words. When you learn English, it's very important for you to ask questions because asking questions means leading the conversations. The more questions you ask, the faster you will learn English. Let's listen to what Sue has to say about questions.

As you can see, there are closed and open questions in English. Please take a look at these examples: Are you from China? Do you speak English? Do you have a car? These three questions are closed questions because they all start with a verb (are or do). An open question starts with a question word: What is your favourite colour? Where are you from? What is your name? What company do you work for? What does this word mean? One of the most important questions you should constantly ask yourself is this: Why do I learn English? Because if you know why you do, you will find the means how to learn English.

Friend, are you ready for your English test number 10? It's about the simple present. I'm sure you'll get most of the questions right and if you want more explanations, just ask your questions on the forum. To see an example, please click here.

And that's about it for today. Enjoy the rest of the week and talk to you soon.
Best regards,
