Agreeing and disagreeing

4

Here are some expressions you can use to agree and disagree. You will need to use these expressions in a discussion activity.

Agreeing

That’s right!
Absolutely!
Exactly!
Me too!
Yes, I agree!
I totally agree!
I couldn’t agree more!
I see exactly what you mean!

You're right. That's a good point.

Disagreeing

I don’t agree!
I totally disagree!
Absolutely not!
That’s not right!
I’m not sure about that.

Partly agreeing

I agree up to a point, but ...
I see your point, but ...
That’s partly true, but ...
I'm not so sure about that.

 

It is always a good idea to justify your opinions. Don’t just say ‘I agree’, but say ‘I agree because I think that ... (explain your reason).’

My favourite phrases are I agree and i am not agree. I used most often both of my favourite phrases. Non of the above are the new for me but i do not use them in my routine life.

Hi m.tayyab... Thanks for commenting. Be careful when you disagree we can not say 'I am not agree' because 'agree' is a verb.  So we should say 'I don't agree' and then explain why. Many students make this simple mistake!
