For an upcoming class on presentations and how to add emphasis in presentations, I wanted to find more info & useful links for students on auxiliaries for emphasis.
I found an excellent page: good information, different examples, well laid-out, even with exercises! And then I realized the page was on Blogspot, a blogging platform completely blocked in China by the Great Firewall.
If you can access the page (e.g. using a VPN) here's the link:
Random Idea English: Emphatic do, does, did and other auxiliaries
If you can't access the page, I saved it as a PDF here on my website.
Emphatic do, does, did and other auxiliaries (PDF, 102kb, without answers)
Download the one above and try doing the exercises. Then download the version below to check your answers.

My Hiknow student C.C. asks:
I have a doubt about the question:
I'm not sure of the grammar here, because I would ask:
Your sentence is correct. And so is the other one. They're both right, just different structures.
I believe the grammar of the questions might become clearer if I give you not only a grammatical explanation of the questions, but also example answers to the questions in the form of complete sentences.
