BEP 29c – Reuniones en ingles: How to Disagree
Bienvenido de nuevo a Business English Pod This lesson is the second part of our series on agreeing and disagreeing. Today we’re going to look at how to disagree.
In the board room or the break room, it’s great to be able to support other people’s ideas by agreeing. But you won’t get far in business if you just agree with everything. You need to be able to disagree confidently and politely. Only then can you convince people that you have an even better idea.
En esta leccion, we’re going to talk about how to disagree in reuniones en ingles. Sometimes you’ll need formal polite expressions, and sometimes you can use shorter more informal expressions. And to take things to the next level, you can learn how to disagree using the “yes… but” approach. Another effective technique is to use questions to disagree. As you can see, you’ve got lots of options for disagreeing.
