    Is it like ?

    Hi All,

    How to ask a question using 'Is it/this like that' ?

    I asked to my colleague like this - "Is it like that we have to stop the timer every time when we are leaving ?"
    I am not sure about how to ask it.

    "Do we have to stop the timer every time we leave?"
    There's no need to write "Is it like ..." there, and it would probably be wrong in most cases. What other examples do you think might need "Is it like ..."?

    I am not a teacher.

    You could get away with, 'Is it like, you know, a rule or something, that we have to stop the timer every time we leave?' in colloquial English, if you are so inclined.
