Bonjour Chris !


I would need some context to give you an accurate answer :)

OK Aurelie,


My examples are:


You went to the cinema yesterday. Is it not so? Or


You are waiting for her. Not so?


Thanks, again, for your support.

Hi Chris,


I think what you are looking for is "n'est-ce pas". It corresponds to the Engish "isn't it?"


Tu es allé au ciné hier soir, n'est-ce pas? -- You went to the movies yesterday evening, didn't you?

Bonjour Chris !


Ok, in that case, you could use the followings:


Tu es allé au cinéma hier, c'est correct ?
Tu es allé au cinéma hier, c'est pas vrai ?


or


Tu l'attends bien ?
Tu l'attends, c'est ça ?


I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
