Thank you for the lesson.But,Is this rules have any exceptions?

Hello learner1978,

There are often exceptions to rules but it's not possible for us to list them all! However, if you find an example which seems not to follow a rule on one of our pages then please include it in a comment and we'll take a look at it.

 

Best wishes,

I’m good at this, aren’t I? <<=== Is this sentence correct? Isn't it weird???

Hello muzizz,

Yes, the sentence is correct. It is a little odd from one point of view, but we use aren't because there is no equivalent contraction with am. You can say

I'm good at this, am I not?

but this is very formal and literary in tone.

the lesson is simple and useful, isn't it?

Yes, it is!

i think it's quite easy but it's really useful while we talk. thank you

such amazing explanation for question tag.Specially the part of intonation when the intonation is up ,it means you're asking real question.If the intonation is down,you aren't ask for real.

Hi

why there is no transcription to this video...i haven't understood what she have said (her second phrase)

Hello abdoo34,

The Language Focus videos don't currently have transcripts, though we do plan to add them at some point in the future. In the meantime, you can ask us about specific time codes to ask for help with short segments. E.g. in 0:03-0:04 Ashlie says 'Ahh, wait and see, wait and see!' Rob says he thinks she has a surprise for Stephen, but Ashlie doesn't want to say if there is a surprise or not.

All the best,
Kirk
