A lot of English students make mistakes when it comes to expressing agreement or disagreement with someone. Here are a few easy ways to sound more natural in conversation.



Think
A lot of students have trouble using "think" to express agreement or disagreement in conversation. Remember, we should use "so" NOT "yes" or "no".

I think so.
I don't think so.


Agree
People sometimes have trouble using "agree" because they forget that it is a verb.

*I agree.
I don't agree / I disagree.*


Guess
We use "guess" sometimes to agree when we're not always sure or convinced. We only use "guess" in positive sentences.

I guess so.


Maybe
When we're not convinced either way we can use "maybe" (or sometimes just to be polite if we don't want to offend by just saying "no").

*Maybe.
Maybe or maybe not.*
