Present Continuous: Tag questions

Tag questions are also formed using the auxiliary. In the following examples, the tag questions are underlined. In spoken English, aren't I? is often used as a tag question. For example:
Affirmative Statement                            Affirmative Statement with Tag Question
  I am working.  I am working, am I not?
  You are working.  You are working, aren't you?
  He is working.  He is working, isn't he?
  She is working.  She is working, isn't she?
  It is working.  It is working, isn't it?
  We are working.  We are working, aren't we?
  They are working.  They are working, aren't they?

Add negative tag questions to the affirmative statements . Except when the subject of the verb is I, use contractions for the tag questions. 

For example:
      It is snowing.
      It is snowing, isn't it?

      They are being cautious.
      They are being cautious, aren't they?


1. I am learning English, am I not?
