What is Tag ?


When teaching tags, the temptation is to concentrate on getting the correct auxiliary.

Two other points are worth remembering:

1. Why tags are used in conversation - to facilitate turn-taking.

2. Tags are not questions - they need a response, which will give more information
to enable the conversation to develop further:

You've been to Malta before, haven't you?
> Yes, but it was years ago.
Really, when was that?
