Basic Question Structure

The basic structure of a question in English is very simple:

auxiliary verb + subject + main verb

auxiliary verb subject main verb  
Do you like Mary?
Are they playing football?
Will Anthony go to Tokyo?
Have you seen ET?

Exception!
For the verb be in simple present and simple past, we do not use an auxiliary verb. We simply reverse the positions of be and subject:

Statement: He is German.
Question: Is he German?
