    A question without do

    I've just seen in this site an advertisment that says: 'So you think you're good at English language?'
    Is it right to ask without using do?

    Re: A question without do

    It is incorrect, but not because there is no “do”. It should be:

    'So you think you're good at English?'

    That sentence is correct although strictly, it is not a question, it is a statement. The question mark makes it into a question. This is very common in spoken English but I would avoid it in formal writing.
