GRAMMAR/PRONUNCIATION of QUESTION tags. – Moira Wendy Miller: MA (Cambridge) Cert.Ed. CELTA
What you’ll learn
Questions tags are difficult: tag questions are often NOT really questions! This course teaches the grammar and meaning.
Most important is the INTONATION! This course builds confidence in speaking.
You will learn things the grammar books do not teach!
Practice REAL English, and grammar.
Speak REAL English, and understand it.
- Intermediate to Adavanced. If you are B1 (intermediate) you may find Section 3 difficult.
Real English, is it? Nice idea, innit! Yep, ain’t it! Shan’t study it, shall we? Understand me, do yer?
Well, you will understand it, won’t you!
The focus is on SPEAKING, INTONATION and PRONUNCIATION. Yep, sure is, ain’t it!
We boldly go where no grammar book dare go! (Star Trek fans will recognise this!)
You’ll build your PRONUNCIATION and INTONATION skills as we study the GRAMMAR. We’ll discover question tags you never knew existed. You’ll study punctuation, ellipsis, and regional variations. We’ll look at some really bad English and slang – it will help you understand native-English speakers in informal conversation.
And it’s all jolly good fun.
The course is NOT suitable for beginners or pre-intermediate. Intermediate is the minimum standard. Section 3 is difficult and therefore more suitable for advanced students.
So, let’s start, shall we?
Who this course is for:
- Master the grammar of tag questions!
- Get the intonation right – get the meaning right!
- Expert, Experienced, Qualified English Teacher.
- Native English Speaker. BBC/RP accent. The Queen’s English, with modern slang too!
STUDENT FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS
Vithal R Patil: Topics, Instruction, explanation of the question tags with examples, various intonations, exercises and the useful tips to mean what we intend to say is so amazing. We’ll be able to understand these very deeply and makes us confident to use these in daily conversations judiciously
Ahmet Yaşlı: It’s very good, thank you.
Agnes Potey: Fantastic lesson, crystal clear explanations and much fun. I think I got the message so far and looking forward seeing more of the question tags lesson. After having seen half of the course, I am even more enthusiastic than at the beginning. So much fun and such an interesting lesson about the question tags and the use of them in British English. Rather advanced stuff, isn’t it? I have watched all the videos and liked them very much. I think I know now how and when to use the question tags, don’t I?
Tessa Warner: I bought this course for our au pair and found myself thoroughly engaged as well! Our au pair was completely immersed in the content and it seemed to me to be a perfect mix of humour and learning.

Well, I’m English, and I’m an English Teacher.
I studied at Cambridge University 1981 to 1984 (science degree), then qualified as a teacher at Cambridge University in 1987. I retired from science, and in 2010 started teaching English here in Cambridge. Now I’m totally retired, and doing videos. I really enjoy making and recording online lessons for you.
Linking, contractions, and bad grammar make us very hard to understand. And we talk too fast, don’t we? Therefore I focus on listening and speaking skills, and teach the good grammar (from the books) and the bad grammar (that we actually use.)
“I’m gonna ‘av another cuppa coffee.” = I’m going to have another cup of coffee.
And it’s true. I am going to have another cup of coffee.
So while I make the coffee I’ll leave you with another bit of information: “I’m gonna wanna ‘av a pizza too.”
So join me in my retirement. Explore English (including the bad stuff), eat pizza, and be inspirational.
