Tag ending for Let's

 

Q:

I was reading about tag questions and the use of let's. One possible option about this could be:

Let's do something, right?

A:

Right? is not the tag ending to use after an imperative sentence beginning with Let's. When you make a sentence beginning Let's, and you want agreement from the person or persons you are speaking to, you can say OK? or Shall we?, or possibly a few other expressions, but not Right?

Right is often used as a tag, informally, in declarative sentences like these:

We're meeting at 10:00 tomorrow,right?
Bob passed his examinations, right?
The planes aren't flying, right?
They haven't accepted our offer yet, right?

We'll hear from you again, right?
