A lot of English students make mistakes when it comes to expressing agreement or disagreement with someone. Here are a few easy ways to sound more natural in conversation.

A lot of students have trouble using "think" to express agreement or disagreement in conversation. Remember, we should use "so" NOT "yes" or "no".

I think so.
I don't think so.

People sometimes have trouble using "agree" because they forget that it is a verb.

*I agree.
I don't agree / I disagree.*

We use "guess" sometimes to agree when we're not always sure or convinced. We only use "guess" in positive sentences.

I guess so.

When we're not convinced either way we can use "maybe" (or sometimes just to be polite if we don't want to offend by just saying "no").

Maybe or maybe not.*
