Learn English – Lesson 21 – It’s Cold Outside

David: It’s cold out tonight, isn’t it?

Karen: It is. I don’t want to go out tonight.

David: Neither do I. What do you want to do for the evening?

Karen: I’d quite like to order a pizza.

David: So do I. Let the pizza delivery man deal with the chill out there.

Karen: We should break out some board games, shouldn’t we?

David: That’s a great idea! Let’s not play Monopoly though, I hate that game.

Karen: So do I. We could play Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit.

David: How about Scrabble? We haven’t played that for a long time, have we?

Karen: Scrabble it is then! Do you want to order the pizza?

David: Sure, do you have a particular pizza in mind?

Karen: They are doing a deal, aren’t they? Three medium-sized pizzas for 10 pounds if I recall. We can order 3 different ones and share them.

David: Okay. If we get 3 pizzas, I don’t want any side plates.

Karen: Neither do I. I’ll have a ham and cheese pizza. You decide on the other two pizzas but I don’t want anchovies.

David: Neither do I. I’ll call them now. Set up the scrabble board…

GRAMMAR PRACTICE –  QUESTION TAGS

 

 

Questions tags are a way to get another person to make a comment. Actually, they are not questions as such and are not used in formal written English. Therefore, they turn an affirmation into a question and are often used to verify that the information we think is true.

If it is a negative question tag, it is usually contracted. If we are constructing a positive phrase, we use a negative question tag. If it is a negative phrase, we use an affirmative question tag. Let’s have a look at some question tags in different times:

Present simple « be » He’s Spanish, isn’t he?
Present simple other verbs They live in Spain, don’t they?
Present continuous We’re playing tomorrow, aren’t we?
Past simple « be » It was cold yesterday, wasn’t it? 
Past simple other verbs He went to the match last night, didn’t he?
Past continuous We were waiting a long time, weren’t we?
Present perfect They’ve eaten, haven’t they? 
Present perfect continuous She’d been planning it for ages, hadn’t she?
Future simple I’ll learn English, won’t I?
Future continuous He will be working, won’t he? 

 

When we use an auxiliary verb, we use the same auxiliary verb in the question tag:

You have called him, haven’t you?

She isn’t be late, is she?

 

If the main part of the sentence does not have an auxiliary verb, the question tag uses a form of  « do« :

I told you so, didn’t I?

He likes this band, doesn’t he?

 

If we use a modal verb in the main part of the sentence, the same modal verb appears in the question tag:

We could go tomorrow, couldn’t we?

wouldn’t be able to go, would I?

 

Using I am can be confusing since the question tag is not I:

I’m going first, aren’t I?

 

When we create an imperative sentence, that is, a phrase that issues a direct order, the question tags are will you / won’t you / can you / can’t you / would you / could you:

 Leave it alone, will you?

Pass me the salt, would you?

 

If we use let’s in the main part of the sentence, the question tag is shall we:

Let’s go to the cinema, shall we?

 

When we use negative words like hardlynever, nonobody and little in a sentence, they are followed by non-negative question tags:

 You never eat your vegetables, do you?
She hardly ever leaves the house, does she?

 

If we create a phrase with nothing or everything, we use it:

Everything will be fine, won’t it?        
Nothing is happening, is it?

 

However, if the phrase uses nobodysomebodyeverybody, etc., we use them:

Somebody knocked on the door, didn’t they?
Everybody likes jazz, don’t they?

 

 

So do I/Neither do I

When we want to show agreement with a phrase in an affirmative form, we use so I. When we agree with a phrase in a negative way, we respond with neither do I.

Examples:

I like paella. – So do I.

I don’t speak Russian.  –  Neither do I.

 

We can also use too in affirmative and either negative.

Examples:

I’m happy. –  I´m happy too

I’m not tired.–  I’m not tired either. 

 

To expand the first form, the answer depends on the phrase, the time spent and the verbal form. In this case, the verbal form is the inverse. So is used in the affirmative and Neither in the negative.

So Am I/Are you/Are we/Are they/Is he/Is she/Is it.
Was I/Was He/Was She/Was it.
Were we/Were you/Were they.
Do I/Do you/Do they/Do we.
Does he/Does she/Does it.
Have I/Have you/Have we/Have they.
Has he/Has she/Has it.
Can I/Can you/Can he/Can she/Can it/Can we/Can they.
Will I/Will you/Will he/Will she/Will it/Will we/Will they.
Neither Am I/Are you/Are we/Are they/Is he/Is she/Is it.
Was I/Was He/Was She/Was it.
Were we/Were you/Were they.
Do I/Do you/Do they/Do we.
Does he/Does she/Does it.
Have I/Have you/Have we/Have they.
Has he/Has she/Has it.
Can I/Can you/Can he/Can she/Can it/Can we/Can they.
Will I/Will you/Will he/Will she/Will it/Will we/Will they.

 

Examples:

I’m tired.  – So am I.

I can juggle.  –  So can I

I’m not tired. – Neither am I.

I can’t juggle.  – Neither can I

 When we speak in the present, we use the auxiliary verb do/does:

I wake up very early.

– So do I.

 

When we speak in the simple past, we use the auxiliary verb did:

Yesterday I woke up very early.

– So did I.
