Learning the Galician Questions displayed below is vital to the language. Galician questions may be either a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or else the request itself made by such an expression. Usually it starts with why, how, where, when ...

Grammar Tips:

In Galician there are 4 ways of asking a question to get a yes or no answer, and they are the following:

-Verb + pronoun: Unlike English, the auxiliaries do and does are not used. ¿Ten ela tempo libre? (Does she have free time?)

-Pronoun + verb: Only the intonation makes the sentence interrogative: ¿Ela ten tempo libre? (Does she have free time?)

-Verb +...+ pronoun. The pronoun goes last ¿Ten tempo libre (ela)? (Does she have free time?)

-Finally you can also make a question by adding a tag question to the end of a statement. Ela ten tempo libre, ¿non?

Ela ten tempo libre, ¿verdade(She has free time, doesn’t she)
