Twenty Little Words: Auxiliary Verbs Are Simply There to Help
Loucky, John Paul
Online Submission
For the past ten years, I have been using a basic framework to help my students grasp question and answer structures. I find that this enables them to develop their language skills quickly and increases their confidence in their conversational ability. Without mastering questions, learners can't even get to first base in terms of making a conversation on their own, let alone decipher the meaning of English that they hear or read, whether in print, film or on the internet. The key to handling question and answer forms correctly lies in an understanding of auxiliary verbs. Teachers need to show learners how to use these verbs in a clear and systematic way in order to enable them to become more fluent English speakers as fast as possible.
