Using "non" to replace "n'est-ce pas"

Using "non" to replace "n'est-ce pas"

What about adding "non" at the end of a question when seeking confirmation? 

Such as "Tu parles anglais, non?" as a shorthand for "Tu parles anglais, n'est-ce pas?"

Hi Steven,

Yes indeed you can use 'non' at the end of the sentence instead of 'n'est-ce-pas'  to ask a question but it is colloquial.

Hope this helps?
