Transcript of "Agree and disagree"

  1. 1. Agree and disagree
  2. 2. Agreeing or disagreeing with a previous speaker In a discussion, it is good to link up with what has already been said – for example, by agreeing or disagreeing with a previous speaker. You are telling someone that you agree of disagree with their opinion.
  3. 3. Responding to someone else's comment "I think [NAME] made an interesting point…" "I'd like to add something to what [NAME] said…" "Can I make a comment on what [NAME] said…" "Can I come back to what [NAME] said…"
  4. 4. Agreeing with a previous speaker "[NAME] said that ____________. I tend to agree with that view because…" AGREE + REASON "I agree with what [NAME] said about ____________. In my view…" AGREE + ELABORATION "I agree. For example, if you consider the situation in my country…" AGREE + EXAMPLE
  5. 5. Agreeing "I think you're right." "I agree with you." Strong agreement "I couldn't agree with you more." "You're absolutely right." "I agree entirely." "I totally agree." Agreeing in part "I agree with you up to a point, but..." "That's quite true, but..." "I agree with you in principle, but..."
  6. 6. Disagreeing with a previous speaker "[NAME] said that________. I disagree because…" DISAGREE + REASON "[NAME] said that __________. However, in my opinion…" DISAGREE + ALTERN ATIVE "I can't agree with what [NAME] said about__________. In my view…" DISAGREE + ALTERN ATIVE
  7. 7. Disagreeing "I'm not sure I agree with you." "(I'm afraid) I don't agree." "(I'm afraid) I disagree." "(I'm afraid) I can't agree with you." "(I'm afraid) I don't share your opinion." Note that when you disagree with someone, you can often sound more polite by using a phrase such as "I'm afraid..." Disagreeing strongly "I don't agree at all." "I totally disagree." "I couldn't agree with you less."
