why would you do this?

Hi, what is the point of inverting verbs? Does it change the mood of the question? All I got from this lesson was "it sounds better".

Bonjour Zeynep,

It might "sound better" but not just: it is a structure you will find when reading French books, poetry, in plays etc ; when writing French too. It is a structure of the French language that needs to be taught, even if, in a casual conversation you won't always use/hear it ;-) .  

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Zeynep, it makes the question more formal and therefore more polite.
