Agreeing and Disagreeing in English

As you converse in English, you’re bound to reach a point where you have to agree or disagree. But you cannot always nod your head and say a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Spoken English skills include good vocabulary and the ability to express yourself in different ways. Being repetitive can be a big turn off. Presentations in office, meetings and debates are occasions where you have to express your views and agree/disagree with others.

Keep these phrases in mind the next time!

To agree :

  • You’re absolutely right!
  • I agree with you hundred percent.
  • I couldn’t agree with you more.
  • You have a point.
  • No doubt about that!
  • That is exactly how I feel.

To disagree:

  • I am not with you on this.
  • Not at all!
  • I’m afraid I don’t agree with that.
  • I am not so sure about that.
  • That is not always the case..
  • I don’t believe that!

To settle an  argument:

  • I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree.
  • Let’s drop it, shall we?
  • Okay, if you say so…
  • Let’s leave it at that.
  • We shall take this up next time.

Use these phrases to not sound repetitive the next time you have to agree or disagree with someone.
