Tips: when you take part in a conversation
Every conversation requieres at least 2 to function. There are four ways to look on you conversation partner:
as a listener: be a good listener, make sure that you listen to what is said. Show a positive attitude
as an assistant: you can help out if someone struggles to find the right word or expression.
as a filler of awkward silences: you all share a responsabilty to fill silences.
take turns: turn-taking is the most fundemantal element of a conversation.
turn the topic around: you stick to the topic but change the direction, give a different perspective
If you agree:
I completely/absolutely agree with you
You’re absolutely right
I couldn’t agree more
I think so too.
If you partially agree
That’s true but
I see you point but
I’m not so sure about that
It is not as simple as it seems
If you disagree
I totally disagree
I’m afraid I can’t agree with you
I’m afraid I have to disagree with you.
I’m sorry to disagree with you, but
