Making questions: present simple
Er zijn een paar werkwoorden die je gewoon vooraan in de zin mag zetten bij het maken van vragen: 
- to be (am/is/are)
- can / will / may / have got

I am 23 years old --> Am I 23 years old?
He can speak English --> Can he speak English?
He has got a brother --> Has he got a brother?

Slide 23 - Tekstslide

Making questions: present simple
Staan deze werkwoorden niet in de zin? Dan moet je een hulpwerkwoord erbij pakken!

Let op! Na elke vorm van do moet je het hele werkwoord gebruiken
