Oral English 1: Lesson 4
Wow! Can you believe this is our fourth lesson already! One month has already passed! I hope everyone is enjoying the semester.
How to Disagree (Refuting Opinions)
At the beginning of today's lesson, we learned different ways to disagree with opinions.
When you hear an opinion, and you want to diagree, there are two ways you can diagree. You can say the opinion is not true or it is not important.
When it is not true, you choose one of these three ways to show disagreement:
a. This is not true because...
b. This is not always true because...
c. This is not necessarily true because...
When the opinion is not important, you can choose one of these three ways to express your disagreement:
a. This is not relvant because...
b. This is not significant because...
c. This is easy to solve because...
In next week's lesson, we'll review these expressions. You'll be using these a lot when we start our debates in November/December.

She said I always told her that l want to be happy forever; l did not mention a dream but only how to live. As time goes by, I started thinking to be a nursery school teacher. The reason l thought it was the experience l had when l was a high school student. There was a nursery school within the grounds that my school was standing on so that the fifth grade students had to do a student teaching every year. And, on my turn, I felt so comfortable to be with children and they made me pure. I was amazed the feeling l had never felt before. From the experience, I studied hard and entered the college where l can learn lots of knowledge relating to education. Yet l have been wondering if the dream is the right way to accept as my portion in life. More or less, l realized the need to select a job in which I won't go hungry from and can earn a decent living. Also, it will be changed by my future husband or partner. In short, I'll take as much time as l need and hope to find my dream.
