In this post we are going to learn how to agree and disagree in English.
AGREE X DISAGREE
Most people know how to use “Me, too” and “Me, neither” to agree in affirmative and negative. Here, I’m going to show you some other ways to agree in both forms and also how to disagree.
AGREE AFFIRMATIVE (same opinion)
ME, TOO – the most common form
You can also use: SO … I. / I … TOO.
I AM Brazilian. – So AM I. / I AM too.
I CAN speak English. – So CAN I. / I CAN too.
I LOVE the summer. – So DO I. / I DO too. (* for verbs in simple present, use auxiliary do)
I DID my job yesterday. – So DID I. / I DID too. (* for verbs in simple past, use auxiliary did)
AGREE NEGATIVE (same opinion)
ME, NEITHER. – the most common form
You can also use: NEITHER … I. / I … (NOT) EITHER.
I AM not Canadian. – NEITHER AM I. / I AM NOT EITHER.
I CAN’T speak Chinese. – NEITHER CAN I. / I CAN’T EITHER.
I DON’T like the winter. – NEITHER DO I. / I DON’T EITHER. (* for verbs in simple present, use auxiliary do/don’t)
I DIDN’T study yesterday. – NEITHER DID I. / I DIDN’T EITHER. (* for verbs in simple past, use auxiliary did/didn’t)
DISAGREE (different opinions)
To disagree or express different opinions is easy, just say the opposite!
AFFIRMATIVE – NEGATIVE
NEGATIVE – AFFIRMATIVE
I AM hungry. – I AM NOT.
I DON’T like sushi. – I DO.
How would you agree and disagree with these opinions?
I like sushi and Italian food.
I can’t stand bland food and greasy food.
I’m in the mood for a pizza.
