不論是在課堂上、職場上,甚至檢定考試時,我們都會被要求要「表達意見」,到底有哪些可以用來表示意見的好用句型呢?

表示同意

在英文中,表示同意的方式有很多,基本上分成 4 種表達的邏輯:

一、用正向的態度附和

  • Yeah, that's just it.
  • Fair enough.
  • Yes, of course.
  • No doubt about it.
  • That's (so/completely/absolutely/undeniably) true.
  • You're (completely/totally/absolutely) right.

二、稱讚對方論點

  • You have a point there.
  • You've made a good point.
  • That's a really good point.

三、直接表示「認同」

  • I (completely/really/totally/absolutely/honestly/truly) agree with you (on that).
  • I couldn't agree more.
  • I see what you mean and I (must) agree with you.
  • I really think/believe so, too.
  • I have no objection whatsoever.

四、表示擁有同樣論點

  • I have come to the same conclusion.
  • I hold the same opinion.
  • I see it that way, too.
  • I share your opinion/view.
  • We are of one mind (on…)
  • We are of the same mind (on…)
  • I was just going to say that.

表示部分同意

如果希望以不傷和氣,又讓人舒服的方式,表示並不是完全認同對方的想法時,我們通常會「先認同,再説『但是』」。

  • I agree with you up to a point, but…
  • I see what you mean, but…
  • That idea is OK, but…
  • I understand that, but…

表示不同意

在表示否定意見時,我們都最害怕讓場面尷尬,或傷到對方。因此,在表示否定的句型中,我們經常會分成兩個部分:友善示好+表示否定。

一、友善示好:先為接下來要說的話感到抱歉

  • I'm afraid…
  • I'm sorry but…

二、友善示好:表示自己也不一定是對的

  • You may be right, but…
  • That might be true, but…

三、表示否定:表示有不一樣的看法

  • I think otherwise.
  • I take a different view.

四、表示否定:直接了當表示不同意

  • I beg to differ/disagree.
  • I don't agree with you on that/what you say.
  • I don't think you're right.
  • I don't share your view.
  • I believe your argument doesn't hold water(站不住腳).
  • I'm not sure I agree with you.
  • That doesn't make much sense to me.
  • That's not always the case.
  • That's not always/necessarily true.

表達意見

當別人說完想法,你也簡單地表示同意或否定之後,就是你的主場秀了。在英文中,同樣也有非常多種開頭,來宣示你接下來的個人意見,可以挑幾的背下來,豐富你在言談單字使用的多樣性!

一、我覺得…:I/It + 動詞

  • I think/consider/find/feel/believe/suppose/presume/assume that…
  • I guess that…
  • I bet that…
  • I gather that
  • I would say that…
  • I have the feeling that…
  • I have no doubt that…
  • I am of the opinion that…
  • I hold the opinion/view that…
  • I take the view that…
  • I am under the impression…
  • I am sure/certain that…
  • It goes without saying that…
  • It seems to me that…
  • It is my impression that…

二、從我的角度而言:In/From/To my…

  • In my opinion,…
  • In my view,…
  • In my eyes,…
  • From my point of view,…
  • From my viewpoint,…
  • To my mind,…
  • To be honest,…
  • My opinion/view/belief/impression is that…
  • My own feeling on the subject is that…
  • My personal view is that…

三、其他

  • As far as I'm concerned,…
  • As for me/As to me…
  • As I see it…
  • The way I see it…
  • Personally speaking,…

大家發現了嗎?在表示意見時,會有一些特別常用的單字,例如:view、point、impression 等字眼反覆出現,熟悉這些單字,再將他以自己喜歡的方式排列組合,就可以有屬於你自己說話風格的說法囉!
