Placement of "es"

O.K. I have a problem.

When I first started out Spanish what I understood was that when asking a question you would never change the placement of the verb is.


Is the dog yours?

  • El perro es tuyo?

The dog is yours

-El perro es tuyo.

But now I'm noticing that they now put "es" in front of the sentence just like english.


Is the concert fun?

  • Es el concierto divertido?

The concert is fun

  • El concierto es divertido.

Is there a real grammatical reason for this? A glitch? And when am I supposed to use them?
