Assunto:  How often are question tags used?
 
Mensagem:  In the last week I was studying about Questions Tags and I found myself in trouble because I know the grammar rule but I'm not able to think fast enough to use question tags in a normal conversation.

There are some kind of tags in sentences that I don't see very often like:

This will be the best car ever. Will It ?
They were looking for new ways to become rich. Weren't they ?


It is correct for me if the grammar structure vision. But  I don't see senteces like that very often even in a written English.

The only tag I've seen normal people using is "isn't". I a spoken sentence like:

This is a good job, isn't ?
You are looking for trouble, isn't ? (incorrect, but I heard a Canadian saying It)

So the question is: How Often Do You Use Question Tags ?
