How do you ask a question expecting a "yes" or "no" answer?

For example: You don't want to go there, do you? No. You do want to go there, don't you? Yes.

You can also say:

Ты же не хочешь туда идти?

"Же" is something like "don't you" in English.

-Ты *же хочешь туда пойти!= You want to go there, dont you?*

-Да, хочу!*

*note: the sentence in this case looks less like a question, but more like an approvement.*
