DEVELOP YOUR SPEAKING SKILLS
Speaking know-how AGREEING AND DISAGREEING
Помните, что вы всегда должны быть вежливы, даже когда вы расходитесь во мнениях со своим собеседником. Выражая свое несогласие, старайтесь, чтобы ваши реплики не звучали агрессивно или недоброжелательно. Лучше всего построить свою фразу так, чтобы создалось впечатление, будто вас огорчает (даже, если это и не совсем так) то, что вы вынуждены не согласиться с собеседником.
Rewrite these sentences correctly.
Key.1 I completely agree with you.
