Use this question to ask for agreement from a listener. People use this expression when:
- they're making a suggestion:
You should ask the professor for help, don't you think?
- they want to state their opinion, but they don't feel confident enough to just directly say it
- they want the listeners to feel included in the statement
Wow. I love this place. It's great, don't you think?
- they want the listener to admit that something is true:
You're too old for that, don't you think?
