English: Let’s see the structure of the questions and the answers in Spanish:
Spanish: Veamos la estructura de las preguntas y las respuestas en español:
English: There are three forms to make a question:
Spanish: Existen tres formas para formular una pregunta:
English: Does Pedro work in New York?
Spanish: ¿Pedro trabaja en Nueva York?
English: Does Pedro work in New York?
Spanish: ¿Trabaja Pedro en Nueva York?
English: Does Pedro work in New York?
Spanish: ¿Trabaja en Nueva York Pedro?
English: The information and the meaning are similar in the three questions.
Spanish: La información y el significado son similares en las tres preguntas.
English: In Spanish the auxiliary verbs, such as in English “do” or “does” are not used to make or answer questions.
Spanish: En español no se usan los verbos auxiliares, tales como “do” o “does” en inglés para formular o contestar preguntas.
English: Example: Do you speak italian?             
Spanish: Ejemplo: ¿Habla usted italiano?
English: No, I don’t speak Italian
Spanish: No, yo no hablo italiano.
English: To make a negative sentence, we simply put the word “no” before the verb.
Spanish: Para hacer una oración negativa, simplemente se coloca la palabra “no” antes del verbo.
English: Example: I do not study Spanish.
Spanish: Ejemplo: Yo no estudio español.
English: If the answer to the question is negative, the word “no” it’s used twice. One at the beginning of the sentence and the other before the verb.
Spanish: Si la respuesta a la pregunta es negativa, la palabra “no” se usa dos veces. Una al comienzo de la oración y la otra antes del verbo.
English: Example: Do you listen to music in class?
Spanish: Ejemplo:  ¿Escuchas música en la clase?
English: No, I do not listen to music in class.
Spanish: No, yo no escucho música en la clase.
English: Does Maria work at home?
Spanish: ¿María trabaja en la casa?
English: No, Maria does not work at home.
Spanish: No, María no trabaja en la casa.
