    The word for "doughnuts" is "les beignets" (masculine plural) and in Belgium they sold them on the street corner. They were incredible!

    When you ask a question in French, there are 4 ways.
    1. straight word order with a question mark at the end. Tu aimes les beignets?

    2. straight word order with "n'est-ce pas" on the end. Tu aimes les beignets, n'est-ce pas?

    3. using "Est-ce que" to begin the sentence. Est-ce que tu aimes les beignets?

    4. this may be the most difficult for you, but it IS the most common = inversion of the subject and verb.
    Aimes-tu les beignets?

    merci!
    i understand all the other ways to ask a question, but why would you put "n'est-ce pas" at the end? or what does "n'est-ce pas" mean?

    See the later post! Depending upon the sentence, the meaning can vary. For example: Il viendra, n'est-ce pas? He will come, won't he? or isn't that so? etc.
