I am not good in grammars. are I?
is this sentence right?

Helly haythamohsory,

It's almost correct - you should say 'am I?' instead of 'are I?', since 'am' is the correct form that goes with the pronoun 'I'. See our question tags page for a detailed explanation of this topic.

sorry the second sentence is
He is too weak to work.

I don't think he is a clever boy.
He is too hard to work.
What are the suitable question tags for the prev. sentences ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Fady,

We have a page on question tags. Why don't you look at it and then tell us what you think?

Hi Fady,

We are all teachers at LearnEnglish, and we think in general that it's best for our users to attempt to use grammar after they've read an explanation of it. What that means, and what I meant in my first reply, is that you should write the sentences with question tags, and then we'll be happy to correct them. Please post your answers here and then we'll reply.

All the best,
Kirk

HI, I am good at this, aren't I?: so you use are + I in this case? thanks for confirming!

Hello Carlosali,

Yes, that's correct - well done!

Hello The LearnEnglish Team, at time code (00:44) I think Ashlie says 'The question, sort of, matches the verb' but I'm not sure for 'sort of'. Would you please clear my doubt? Thanks.

Hello,

Yes, you're quite correct!

Best wishes,
