Daily grammar lesson with Elo Kasia. How to answer questions like a native. Learn how to use short answers (“I do.” or “I don’t.”) and “helping verbs” (auxiliaries) when answering questions.

We have practised asking questions in different tenses this week. But how do we answer questions properly? Many English learners make mistakes when answering YES/NO questions.

 

For example:

 

  • Do you like action films? Yes, I like.
  • Did you have a nice break at the weekend? Yes, I had.
  • Have you ever tried avocados? No, I never.

 

Also, native speakers don’t just say “Yes” or “No”. For short answers, we use “helping verbs”. Remember, the clue is always at the start of a question, so listen for “do”, “did”, “have”,”are“, ”were” and so on and answer with that “helping verb.”
Let’s look at the most common tenses (tenses express the present, past or future).

I do or I don’t Short answers to questions with auxiliary verbs  1. Present Simple – “do” or “does”/ “don’t” or “doesn’t”

 

  • Do you speak English? Yes, I do. or No, I don’t.
  • Does he work here? Yes, he does. or No, he doesn’t.

I do or I don’t Short answers to questions with auxiliary verbs  2. Past Simple – “did”/ “didn’t”

 

  • Did you meet your friends yesterday? Yes, I did. Or No, I didn’t.
  • Did they visit their parents last weekend? Yes, they did. Or No, they didn’t.

 

 

I do or I don’t Short answers to questions with auxiliary verbs  3. Present Continuous – “am”, “is”, are”/ “I’m not”, “isn’t” or “aren’t”

 

  • Are you studying for your test? Yes, I am. Or No, I’m not.
  • Is he living with his sister now? Yes, he is. Or No, he isn’t.

 

I do or I don’t Short answers to questions with auxiliary verbs  4. Past Continuous – “was” or “were”/ “wasn’t” or “weren’t”

 

  • Were you talking on the phone to your mum when I arrived? Yes, I was. Or No, I wasn’t.
  • Were they shopping when you met them in town last night? Yes, they were. Or No, they weren’t.

 

I do or I don’t Short answers to questions with auxiliary verbs  5. Future Simple – “will”/ “won’t”

 

  • Will you come to my party? Yes, I will. Or No, I won’t.
  • Will you help me? Yes, I will. Or No, I won’t.

 

Once you have answered your question, it is common to give more details, so, for example:

 

Have you ever been abroad? Yes, I have. I have been to many countries.
Or No, I haven’t. I cannot afford to go abroad.
Are you doing anything exciting this weekend? Yes, (in fact) I am. I’m going to see a play.
No, I’m not. I’m stuck in the house.
Practise these short answers to questions in the most commonly used tenses, then go over the questions and try to give more details in order to make a proper conversation!
