In German, you often add the question word oder after a statement (", oder?") to ask whether the statement's correct. What is the equivalent of oder in English?
I always begin sentences with this scheme and then don't know how to finish them. Must I change my question structure for such questions?
I know that you can ask whether a statement's correct by asking a negative like this:
You were in school last week, weren't you?
With this, you also have to restructure your sentence in most cases
How about this?:
You were in school last week, right?
Is this structure used often or is this just a bad solution to the problem?
