THE VARIOUS WAYS OF EXPRESSING AGREEMENT AND DISAGREEMENT

We use these different expressions to show agreement and disagreement. This is an essential part of trying to find a conclusion or negotiating an outcome in language use.

 

AGREE

I (ADVERB) AGREE WITH

WE AGREE ON

I SEE YOUR POINT

I GET WHAT YOU MEAN

I UNDERSTAND YOUR POINT

I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING

I UNDERSTAND YOUR OPINION

WE SEE EYE TO EYE

YOU TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT OF MY MOUTH

EXACTLY!

THAT´S RIGHT!

OF COURSE!

I COULDN´T AGREE MORE

 

DISAGREE

I DISAGREE WITH

I DON´T AGREE WITH

I DON´T SEE YOUR POINT

NO WAY!

I DON´T GET YOUR OPINION

I CAN´T SEE WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM

HAVEN´T YOU THOUGHT ABOUT IT FROM A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW?

REALLY?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

THAT´S IMPOSSIBLE

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

IS THIS A JOKE?

THAT CAN´T BE RIGHT

YOU MUST BE JOKING!

ARE YOU PULLING MY LEG?

I CAN´T AGREE WITH YOU ON…

THAT DOESN´T MAKE SENSE

THERE IS NO WAY (ON EARTH)…

(VULGAR) ARE YOU TAKING THE PISS?

(VULGAR) YOU MUST BE A FOOL!

(VULGAR) ARE YOU STUPID?

 

SETTLE

LET´S LEAVE IT

WHY DON´T WE GO ON TO SOMETHING ELSE

SHALL WE MOVE ON?

YOU COULD BE RIGHT, BUT I WILL NEED TO LOOK INTO IT

LET´S CHANGE THE TOPIC

LET´S AGREE TO DISAGREE

WE CAN´T AGREE SO…
