How to agree with someone in English Posted by on Sep 30, 2020 in English Grammar, English Language, English Vocabulary

Hey, everyone! There is no denying that we are currently living in times of drastic polarization, wouldn’t you say so? And while that is not necessarily negative, given that we are more and more exposed to different points of view, there is nothing more comforting than being able to agree with someone’s opinion. And there are several ways to do that in English. And this is why today’s post will help you move beyond the highly useful but overused I agree. We are going to go over some idioms, phrases and expressions that can be used to express agreement. Be it at a casual conversation with friends, at a sober business meeting or in a lecture at the university, showing someone that you share the same opinion can not only enrich the debate but also forge bonds. Besides, the more you use these terms, the more natural and fluid conversation will sound. So it’s time to get started! Do you agree?
