A1/A2 Wh-questions in the past simple

Hello! For today’s class we plan to introduce questions using wh-words.

As I explained in our classes, wh-questions are different from yes/no questions because they don’t need a yes or no for an answer. These questions ask for some missing information (time, place, reason, etc). Can you imagine that somebody asks you the time and you answer ‘yes’? This sounds quite funny because you should give the person the time (hour and minutes).

Another thing to notice in wh-questions is that we use wh-words at the beginning of the question. Here’s an example:

Did you like the film?

Why did you like the film?

Here’s a short video that explains the basics for wh-questions in the past simple. After watching the video, you can click on the quiz button to see how much you learnt.

I hope you find it useful!
