    I'm just adding some final touches to my speaking assessment, which I have in a couple of days. I've learnt it all and have a variety of A grade structures in there- but i was wondering can i ask a rhetorical question at the end?

    In English this is what i want to say : I couldn't go surfing in England, could i?
    The first part is 'je ne pouvais pas faire du surf en Angleterre' but how would i phrase the question?

    Do i have to use the conditional tense of pourrais?

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thankks

    I would personally say "je pourrais faire du surf en Angleterre, n'est-ce pas?" But more context would be useful!

    Thanks, and is 'n'est-ce pas' most commonly used by French speakers then?
