You use question tags to check your information or if someone agrees with you, in Czech you would use "že jo" or "že ne", in German "oder" at the end of a sentence.

How to use them

  • positive statement + negative question tag
You like pizza, don't you?
He lives in London, doesn't he?
You're mad at me, aren't you?

  • negative statement + positive question tag
You can't speak French, can you?
He won't kill her, will he?
You're not mad at me, are you?


Complete these questions with a tag.

1 You've finished school, haven't you?
2 You live in a flat, don't you?
3 You don't have a sister, do you?
4 You'd rather go to the cinema than the theatre, wouldn't you?

Travel Tips for Tourists

There are certain things you should remember if you want to get the most ouf of a visit to my country

________(1 C )
First of all, travelling around. One good way of seeing the country is to travel by train. The trains in my country are quite efficient and not too expensive. In the big cities, you can take bus or a taxi. Hitch-hiking is quite dangerous and should be avoided. If you want to get around cheaply, try cycling.

_________(2 G)
Hotels in the summer are usually full. If you are stuck, try asking for rooms in private houses. However, you may have to share a bathroom with other guests. Do not expect the owners to spend a lot of time with you: they will tend to keep themselves to themselves.

__________(3 A)
The traditional food of my country is rich and tasty and uses a lot of meat; not many fresh vegetables are used. The golden rule is: eat the main meal at lunch time. In the evening, we prefer to eat a cold dish, such as sausages and cheese. The first course is usually soup; the famous goulash is not a main dish but a soup.

_________(4 B)
My country has a wide variety of wines, both red and white. Try the white demi-sec Tokaj Aszu, which is probably the best, but quite expensive. Besides wine, there is an excellent local beer and Russian vodka is also available, which is very cheap.

_________(5 H)
My country is famous for its colorful traditional embroidery, found on blouses, tablecloths ect. Typical souvenirs also include dolls and clowns made of porcelain.
