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.
