English [Auto] Hey, guys, welcome to video to do you to do here in this video, I want to show you some simple examples of how do you in questions the word you will become. Yeah, do ya OK. Pronounced with me now. Do ya. Do ya. OK, now I just want to explain quickly about why do we use do in a question if we compare you want and do you want do makes it clear that it is a question in the verb to be we saw that we must change the word order. Am I. Are you. Is he. Is she. ET cetera. And that with the verb to be you will never have the word do to ask questions. Do I am do you. That's completely incorrect. OK, here we see again all the other verbs, the modal verbs. Must you, will you, should you, could you. They all change the word order. OK, now verbs like the verb to be that change the word order a ten percent of all verbs verbs that use the verb do as an auxiliary verb are 90 percent of all verbs ok. And essentially will use do for I you we they do. I really want or need to go to buy or to talk. Right. That's how we start the question. So with the pronunciation is it. Do you to do. Yeah. Do you pronounce with me now. Do ya. OK now remember after the words like what when, where, why, what time etc.. It is still necessary to use the word do in the question to make it clear to me, OK, it is a question that you are asking a real question. OK guys, time to train now remember pause. Listen and repeat and train. OK, let's go. What do you do? What do you what do you do? What do you do? What do you do? Do you have any money? Do you do you have any money? Do you have do you have any money, do you have any money? Why do you need it? Why do you why do you need it? Why do you need it? Why do you why do you need it? What do you mean?
