Question tags are more in spoken English than in written English. Sometimes we use a question tag when we want the other person to respond to our comment. It can help a conversation flow more.
Examples of question tags:
- You're from France, aren't you?
- Yesterday was really interesting, wasn't it?
- I don't need to finish this today, do I?
- The bus stop is on Princes Street, isn't it?
