Transcript of Asking questions in English

Type of information:
Now, how?
Let's see some examples:
Context:
Before asking questions in English you need to
consider three aspects:

Place?
Reason?
People?
Quantity?
Time?
Age?
Personal info
Habits
And something that we do not have in Spanish:
AUXILIARIES
After class, I go _________ and watch TV.
General info?
A "yes"?
A simple"no"?
So, what type of info is unknown?
Activity?
Time?
People?
Quantity?
Reason?
Apparently we are
looking for a PLACE...
In this way, we can identify the WH-word that we need:
Place= Where
Time= When
Quantity = How much
Time duration = How long
Reason = Why
People = Who
Choice = Which
General info = What
Where _________ you go after class?

And in other cases,
no matter how complicated they seem,
you follow the same steps:
In 1973, Gates entered ____________ University.
NAME?
What university ___________ Gates enter in 1973?
What university did Gates enter in 1973?
Other possibilities:
What university did Gates go to in 1973?
What university did Gates study at in 1973?
