Yes. Thank you for the answer.


Although I try to use the word thoughts instead of Comments.

I don't know, I like more that word than the other one.


Which one you can recommending me more comments or thoughts.

Doesn't it? meaning No es asi?

Please I appreciate your help.
Estaba diciendo que podía decir "estaba exagerando", pero que me sonaba un poco rara la palabra "exaggerating", en inglés. ¿Es eso lo que me preguntas?

I think I understan what you were asking, maybe. Were you asking about "doesn't it?"


They're called "tag questions" and are equivalent to our "¿no?". You have to ask them using the same auxiliary verb used in the sentence and, if there isn't any, you must use "do". For instance:

Vas a ir al cine hoy, ¿no?
You're going to the cinema today, don't you?

Te has comido todas las patatas, ¿no?
You have eaten all the potatoes, haven't you?

Deberías ir al médico, ¿no?
You should go to a doctor, shouldn't you?

I hope I'm not wrong, am I?

Well in this sentence, they both really mean the same thing, so I guess it depends on how you feel. If you're feeling open to hearing ANYTHING someone might be thinking (which may be a pleasant or unpleasant reaction), go with "thoughts". If you aren't interested in hearing everything that could be on someone's mind, go with "comments". Sometimes, we may be thinking something that we may not write/comment out loud.

Then I must turn the first choice for instance.

I'm agree with your thought.

I'm agree with your comment.

Really they meaning the same in both cases.

I go for the first one.

It would be better: didn't I?

There was a mistake in my example:

You're going to the cinema today, don't you? That should be:
You're going to the cinema today, aren't you?

Sorry!

Yes, I can see that it's a little to hard to use, because it's very confused and well, I haven't experience in the use to them, but I will try to use them, I hope in soon can use them.

I will....


Or Didn't I?

In this case "won't I?" (future: will)
