    Question Tags

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello, I have an annoying problem concerning question tags...more specifically a construction as follows:
    Nobody loves school,.....?
    Now, I know that I need ,,they" at the end but the big problem is related to the auxiliary from ,,check" part. When I deal with a Past structure is quite simple but at Present is ,,deadly". Despite this fact my solution would be:
    Nobody loves school, doesn't they?
    ....but I'm not sure at all and I'm interested in explaining the structure to my students. Thank you
