    The wrong part

    #1 Matt is studying the engineering and hopes to work for the city designing brideges when he graduates.

    There is one underlined part which is wrong, but I can't get it. I would like to know the answer and reason.
    #2 I think we should look in the matter further before signing the contract, don't you?

    I think don't you ahould be shouldn't we. Correct?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: The wrong part

    1 'engineering' (or any subject) doesn't require the definite article.
    2 'look in' should be 'look into'

    Thanks Tdol

    I think we should look into the matter further before signing the contract, don't you?

    In this case, don't you have to change don't you to shouldn't we?

    Thanks

    'Dont you?' refers to 'I think'...'don't you think that as well?'

    'We should look into the matter...,shouldn't we?'
