Effective Communication

Agreeing politely to opinions | Effective Communication

We have learned how to ask for and give opinions politely in a communication. How was your experience in sharing your ideas? Have you posted a status on your timeline through your social media accounts? How did your friends react to your post? What are their comments? In reality, not everybody may agree with what you shared. But that is normal, they learn from you and you learn from them. Now, let us talk about how to respond to an opinion. See how it affects you if someone responds to you using these phrases. List them down and remember the phrases.

“You’ve got the point there”.

“That’s a very good idea.”

“That’s a great suggestion.”

“I’m convinced that..”

“I agree with you/that..”

“I see where you’re coming from.”

“I’d go along with that.”

“I see your point.”




“I feel the same.”

These are some phrases that we commonly use in responding to an opinion politely specifically in agreeing to what a person stated. When we agree on an idea, we also need to prepare backup details to support our opinions. This is to show that we really have an objective in stating our points.

Throughout our lives, we encounter such expressions even right now. We all have the right to express our thoughts and feelings in many ways. However, we have to remember that others may agree or disagree with us. With this, we must be open-minded and accept others’ opinions and advice. Using phrases to express agreement can be very effective in communication. If you want to share your thoughts by responding to one’s opinion, it is your time to express yourself. It is important to be polite in stating your point of view and learn from others.
