I must repeat myself and write another piece about asking questions because many students, irrespective of their level, seem not to grasp the rule(s) for questions.
The most important thing is that in English we need an auxiliary for asking a simple question. The problem is that in Romanian we make do (manage) without an auxiliary, hence the source of mistakes.  
So always say: ”Do you speak English?” and not as some of my most diligent students say: ”You speak English?”, because in Romanian we say: Vorbești/ Știi engleză?”.
Always say: ”Did you know him?” and never say: ”You knew/know him?” and use some kind of intonation to show that this is a question.
