Hi everyone, welcome to english-learning.net . I hope you’re well today, In this lesson, we’re going to learn different ways to show agreement. 

1. I agree

Yes, this seems to be the most direct way to tell people that you support their ideas. For example: 

  • I think we should book the tickets early.
  • I agree.

2. I agree 100% 

The extra word “100%” makes your agreement much stronger. For example:

  • For the next meeting, let’s have it in a coffee shop instead of the meeting room.
  • I agree 100%.

3. Exactly

This is a good way to show a strong agreement, by saying “exactly”, you tell people what they have said is exact and true. For example:

  • Young people tend to do the opposite of what we tell them to do.
  • Exactly.

4.  Absolutely. 

If you want to tell people you totally agree with no doubt or suspicion, then “absolutely” is a great choice. For example: 

  • Hey Ron, I’m going picnic this afternoon, Can I borrow your sunglasses?
  • Absolutely.

5. That’s for sure. 

This expression basically means you surely agree with what people say, it is often used to reply to a request or suggestion.

  • Callum, is it possible for me to ask for leave now?
  • That’s for sure.

6. I couldn’t agree with you more. 

This is the highest level of agreeing with someone because you can’t agree more than I do. It is straight-forward and very common. For example:

  • I have to say Paris is the most beautiful and romantic city.
  • Yes, I’ve been there and I couldn’t agree with you more.

7. That’s exactly what I think. / That’s exactly how I feel. 

This long expression not only shows your agreement but also tells people you have the same idea or thought. For example:

  • I think we should ask for a pay raise in the next meeting
  • That’s exactly what I think.
