A lot of listeners have asked me about the difference between doubt and question. For today’s English lesson, let’s have a look how we can use these two words in English conversation and writing.

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or the check the transcript for the details:

Using doubt as a noun:

  • Jane said she loves me, but I have some doubts about her feelings.
  • Jack said he has some doubts about his ability to finish the project by Friday.
  • I have no doubt that the people who listen to this podcast are very interested in improving their English.

Using doubt as a verb:

  • Jane said she loves me, but I doubt she is telling me the truth.
  • Jack said he doubts his ability to finish the project by Friday.
  • I don’t doubt that the people who listen to this podcast are very interested in improving their English.

Using question as a noun:

  • I asked her a question about her love for me.
  • Jack has several questions about the project which is due on Friday.
  • If you have any questions about this lesson, or any other lesson on this blog, please feel free to ask me.

Using question as a verb:

  • The police questioned the suspect for several hours.
  • The boss questioned Jack about the project he is working on.
  • I questioned her love for me, and she became angry.

In summary:

  • I have a question. How many lessons are here on this website?
  • I have some doubts about his ability to finish the project. He’s not such a quick worker.
