    Because in english when u make a direct question the verb always comes before the subject, so if u use ''?'' u need to change, thats why its translated like that! en français 'êtes-vous anglais?''c est le memme chose que ''are you english?''

     

    This is exactly the same grammar as English. Look again.
    Are you English / êtes-vous Anglais. VERB + SUBJECT + QUALITY ?
    You in French is vous OR tu.
