Make a point strongly/Expressing a doubt

How far do you believe in what you are saying? Are you being skeptical, do you feel that there are perhaps other issues to consider that are being ignored, but that your superiors have "forgotten" to mention? If you are 100% behind what you are saying, the first set of phrases is for you. If you wish to make it known that you are not 100% convinced of what is being discussed, then choose from the second set:

  • The most important aspect to consider is...
  • My point is...
  • I'd like to make the point that...
  • Hang on! I think we must...
  • I'm not too sure about...
  • Do you really think...?
  • Have we considered all the ramifications of...?

Agreeing/Disagreeing

Again, the strength of your convictions is important: choose carefully!

stronger:

  • You're quite right.
  • I couldn't agree more.
  • I fully agree (with you).
  • Precisely. / Exactly. / Absolutely. / Definitely.
  • You may be right.
  • Yes, it's possible.

weaker:

  • Possibly.
  • Yes, up to a point.
  • You could be right, but...
  • Well, I'm not sure I can agree with you on that.
  • I don't really agree.

stronger:

  • It's hard to see how that can be so.
  • I really can't agree with that.
  • I'm afraid that's out of the question.
  • Of course not.
  • I disagree.
  • Absolutely not.
