Saying your profession


Professions require the article 'a' or 'an'. The word 'an' is used

if the following word starts with a vowel sound.


I am a doctor.  I'm an engineer.  She is a nurse.  He is a dentist.  He's an architect. 


Forming questions in English


For most verbs, questions are formed by adding the word 'do' or 'does' to the start of

the question or after a question word such as: why, where, when, what, which, how


Do you live in the USA? Where do you live? What do you do? Where does he work?

How does she travel to work? Does she like living here?


For 'he', 'she', 'it', a person or thing, use the word 'does'. (Singular - doeS).


For pronouns 'I', 'you', 'we', 'they' and people and things, use the word 'do'. (Plural with the exception of 'I'). Also note that the pronoun 'you' is always plural in English. There is no singular form.


When using 'do' or 'does' the verb is not conjugated. (Do not add an 's' to the singular forms).
