Short YES or NO Answers = Survival English

Every day you are asked simple questions like:

“Are you…?”              “Is he…?”

“Do you have…?”      “Does he have…?”

Many of these questions can be answered with short YES or NO statements:

  • Are you …? — “Yes, I am.”   or  “No, I’m not.”
  • Is he …? —  “Yes, he is.” or  “No, he isn’t.”
  • Do you have…? — “Yes, I do.”  or   “No, I don’t.”
  • Does she have…? —  “Yes, she does.”  or  “No, she doesn’t.”
We need to practice these simple answers a lot.
This practice helps us speak English with confidence!
