hy peter.. i'm good at this, aren't I? why does it use that? why not "I'm good at english, am I not?

Hi Elisa Nur Halimah,

This is a use which has, we think, come about for reasons of ease of use. The pronunication of 'aren't I' is easier than what any variant with 'am' and so it has become the accepted form. If you do not contract it then you use 'am', so the two possible forms are:

I'm good at this, aren't I?

and

I'm good at this, am I not?

The second of these is very formal and sounds old-fashioned, so is rarely used.
