1.1 Rearrange the words and complete the questions.

1.2 Work on the grammar rules and do the practice.

In general questions, the auxiliary verb (do, be, have, will) is placed before the subject, and the main verb follows the subject, i.e., the word order is: Auxiliary verb + Subject + Infinitive (ASI). Responses to general questions can be in the form of short «Yes» or «No» answers or in the form of full statements.

In the special questions the question word (why, when, how etc.) starts the sentence. The word order then is the following: Question word + auxiliary verb + subject + Infinitive (QUASI).

1.3 Drag the words into the correct gaps to make the questions.

1.4 Answer the questions. Use positive (P) and negative (N) answers.


Do you play the guitar? (P) — Yes, I do.

Does she play tennis? (N) — No, she doesn’t.

Did your mother study Chinese language? (P) — Yes, she did.

  • 489
  • 700
  • 3000
  • 14 681

! Interesting fact

When we say English phone numbers we should pronounce each number individually.

Remember! We read 0 as zero or oh. If the same numbers go one by one, you can say “double”e.g. 55 = double five; 555 = triple five.

These symbols we read as:

@ = at
. = dot

Ex.: 0 726 143 557 89 — oh, seven two six, one four three, double five, seven eight nine.
