Description: Learn how to form questions with question words in English.
Video Transcript: Question words replace unknown information in a question. If a question word replaces the subject of a sentence, don't change the order of the words in the sentence when you form a question. The subject is the person or thing that does the action of the verb and usually comes before the verb - Who is in the house? Brenda is in the house. The object of the sentence is the person or thing that receives the action of the verb and usually comes after the verb. Form these questions according to the same rules as for yes/no questions. With the present tense verb teach, I use the word do to form a question. The question word goes at the beginning of the sentence. - What do they teach? They teach English.
