Task 2. Number 2: Is not there a mistake with this solution sentence: I’m good at this, aren’t I?

Hello Syl,

That sentence is correct. We use 'are' as the auxiliary in question tags for the first person ('I'). This looks rather unusual, I admit, but it is correct.

The reason for this can only be speculated but the most likely cause is pronunciation. It is difficult to pronounce any kind of question tag with 'am' other than the very formal-sounding 'am I not', and so it is likely that over time 'aren't I' became the standard form.

 

Best wishes,

Peter
