Expressing Agreement And Disagreement Worksheet

It is a simple worksheet for using expressions to give opinions, consents and practices of disagreement. It is a useful language for AEPs or ESLs (English for academic purposes). Expressing disagreements is always considered honest and sometimes courageous. Perhaps we must express our consent or opposition to a person`s action or attitude. So it`s much better to do it right! Students enter the expressions in the fields of their worksheet. The worksheet consists of two phases. In the first phase, the teacher of the class receives expressions. If/he should also offer some useful phrases like these: Yes, I know… Here`s a whole series of phrases to “remember.” But if you take a closer look, many are quite similar and express only small details or nuances. If you get used to using them, you`ll learn what to use based on the people you`re chatting with and the level of language (or recording) you need to use. After all, it becomes very easy…

In the second phase, the teacher lets the students discuss the instructions at the bottom of the worksheet. Students are encouraged to use the above expressions. – It`s partly true that… – It`s true, but… I cannot agree with reservations. – It`s obvious, but… – It`s not as simple as it sounds. – I agree with you, in principle, but… It sounds obvious, but… under certain circumstances… You can also accept, but with reservation, especially when there is a doubt or feeling of not being able to accept something completely.

IT`S COMPATIBLE WITH SOMEONE. (Be CAREFUL! AGREE should not be built with BE as a help tool!) At every moment of our daily lives, perhaps we must express our opinion and we should not abstain from it! Focus: the language for discussions (giving opinions, accepting, contradicting) you approve NOD… You shake your head to disagree… – I`m sorry, but I don`t agree with you. – I`m afraid I don`t agree with you. – The problem is that… – I (many) doubt that (if)… – It`s totally at odds with… – With all due respect,… – I don`t agree because…

– I can`t share this /this / the point of view. I do not agree with that idea. What I am saying is that I have thoughts about it. – It`s more than that. The problem is that… I think… There are also many derivative and similar expressions: – I totally/absolutely/complete/agree with you. I don`t think there are many other constructs where learners often make mistakes… or the same kind of errors as that of this verb! I) Like you, YOUR ACCORD TO EXPRESS: I agree with you!.
