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%.
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.
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?
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.
