What`s Disagreement In Spanish

Expressing your approval or rejection is an important part of conversations. How can you exclaim that the person you`re talking to is locic because that`s how you think, or how you absolutely agree with another person`s brilliant thoughts? If you are already at a conversational level in your Spanish, it is very useful to return to a few words that will help move the conversation forward and convey your ideas even more. Whether you agree with something that has been said or vehemently disagree, here are lists of Spanish words you can use. This is a very good lesson if you need to have lunch with the same family every day. I would always say the same things: “Yes, gracias” or “No, gracias”. Now I have a variety of things to spice up my answers! My Spanish teacher here in Portland, Oregon (from a company called Portland In Spanish) suggested that if I had the time, if she taught me a basic phrase, I should look for alternative phrases with the same meaning if I use them a lot. Thank you Adir! You helped me with my homework for the week. We are now in “A mí me… Group, so since I led with an affirmative, “A mí también” and “A mí no” are at stake. “A mí también” would affirm approval and “A mí no” would tilt it in the negative.

Again, this is your choice based on what`s right for you. What we want to avoid at all costs is the reaction to a “A mí me… » Invites with a “Yo… Think of it like crossing streams in Ghostbusters: that would be very bad. Yo no estoy de acuerdo. – I don`t agree with that. No Creo. –I don`t think so. No lo veo así. – I don`t see it that way. Entiendo lo que quieres decir, pero. “I know what you mean, but. Estoy de acuerdo con que …, pero .

– I agree that…, but . Estoy de acuerdo hasta cierto punto. – I agree to some extent. Note that the Spanish side is consistent: subject pronouns + qualifiers. In English, we combine subject and object pronouns in an accepted but technically erroneous way. In English, we also use a verb “I am” and “I am not” in some cases, but not in others: “Me too” and “Me neither”. Curiously, some English speakers correct too much in Spanish and say “Yo soy” or “Yo no soy”. It`s also worth mentioning: when a native English speaker transfers uppercase/lowercase to English, he comes out stupid/stilted. I hope this explanation of the “biting answers” will help you improve your fluency and confidence in Spanish. Click here for a video tutorial on the subject.

What are “biting answers”? These are automatic and authentic ways to respond to almost any custom prompt in Spanish. There are eight: “Yo también”, “Yo no”, “Yo sí”, “Yo tampoco”, “A mí también”, “A mí no”, “A mí sí” and “A mí tampoco”. The first four answers are used in transitive constructions and the other four are used with verbs such as gustar. This is important because the shape of the prompt determines which are four of the eight in the game. (Based on the prono pronos case and rapid construction, four of these eight are immediately dismissed as inappropriate.) Once you`ve determined what the four are in the game, it`s as simple as determining whether you agree or not. .
