What is the differences between Qu'aimes-tu and Qu'est-ce que aimes-tu?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. There are 4 ways to ask a question in French. They are all correct:
1. Qu'aimes-tu? (Inversion possibly the most common)
2. Qu'est-ce que tu aimes? (note, your word order was incorrect. This form is used because you still have straight word order = subject + verb
3. Tu aimes? (seems incomplete because there is no direct object here = straight word order plus question mark)
4. Tu aimes, non? (same as #3 = no direct object = straight word order + "non?")
when est-ce que is not used, you have to do inversion qu'aimes-tu? This inversion is not always so simple so to avoid it, plag in the est-ce que and continue with the usual ( basic)word order.
that was plug in
