    --" Do you like his speech, my dear?"
    --" Did you like his speech, my dear?"

    No matter is "do" or "did" in such situation, both are ok, right? Or any difference between two sentences?

    The only difference is the time when his speech spoken. #1 in the present. #2 referring to the past.

    Dear Naamplao,

    U mean when his speech is not over I should use "do". But just after his speech is over, I must use "did". Right?
