Lesson #5 PT Questions – Check your answers

How can I ask a question in Present Tense?

What do you hear: a question or a statement?

Question Statement
2. X
4. X

Most verbs….

1)      You start the question with the helping verb “do” or “does” (for he, she, it)

2)      Add your subject

3)      Match them!

4)      Add your main verb – NO ENDING!

5)      Finish the sentence


Remember, only one verb gets a special ending – and the helper gets the ending – NOT the main verb this time.
