    Question Constructing a question

    Hello,

    I'm not really sure about the correct version:

    You're speaking about your current job, aren't you?
    You're speaking about your current job, don't you?

    Which one do I have to use and why?
    I'd go for the first one since it seems to be logical, but I was typing the 2nd one unconsciously - so I would like to be sure here.

    Thank you in advance
    Bye, Chris

    The first one is correct, "...you are.........aren't you?"
