What is a question?

A question is a request for information or action.

We ask questions all the time.

As an English learner it is probably one of the most important skills to practise. If you don't know the right question, you'll never get the right answer.

There are several different kinds of question (see above). Knowing which ones to use in the right situation can be useful.

With the right tone of voice any sentence can be turned into a question, but when writing a question you should always end the sentence with a question mark (?).

You can practise asking and answering questions on the forum.
