express agreement, disagreement

  1. Learn how to Express agreement and disagreement

To Agree

 

Use adverbes : totally! Exactly! Absolutely! actually! definitely! Doubtlessly! Actually (yes)!

Definitely! For sure! Sure enough! Unquestionably! Precisely!

“I completely agree,” or “You’re totally right.”

I share your view.

I think so.

I really think so.

He is quite right / absolutely right       .

I have no objection.

I approve of it.

I have come to the same conclusion

I hold the same opinion.

We are of one mind.

I am at one with him on that point.

It is true.

That is right.

That’s just it !

Fair enough !

Quite so !

Just so !

 

 

To Disagree

Say “I’m afraid. . .” For example, you could say “I’m afraid I don’t agree with you,” or “I’m afraid I can’t agree.” If you do not agree with anything the other person has said, you can say, “I am afraid I completely disagree with you.”

Use adverbs+not “absolutely not!”

Notice that when you disagree with someone in English, you need to give a reason why you disagree. It is not enough to simply state that you think the other person is wrong and leave it at that. Explain your thoughts and opinions fully.

I don’t agree.

I disagree.

I don’t think so.

You are wrong / he is wrong.

I think otherwise.

I don’t think that’s quite right.

I don’t agree with you/him.

I don’t agree with what you say.

I am afraid that is not quite true.

I take a different view.

I don’t share his/her/your view.

This argument does not hold water.

Not at all!

Nonsense!

Rubbish!

He’s off his head !(il a perdu la tête)
