Curso de Inglês para Tímidos: Lição 21

Hello, there! We have Five lessons to go and I’d like you guys to comment on very current topics, in English, of course!

We all heard about Geisy Arruda being harrassed at college because she was wearing a skimpy outfit. As it turned out, she was expelled and asked to come back after a lot of hype. What I’d like to hear from you guys is, Who was wrong in the situation?

Could you think of some ways this situation could have been handled?

Here are some expressions you can use to express your opinion (taken from the book Functions of American English, Cambridge):

I think that …
I believe that …
I truly believe that …
If you ask me …
You know what I think? I think that …
The point is …
Wouldn’t you say that … ?
Don’t you agree that …?
I’d just like to say that I think that …
I’d like to point out that …

To agree you can use the following expressions:

Exactly.
I couldn’t agree more.
That’s just what I was thinking.
You know, that’s exactly what I think.
That’s a good point.

To disagree:

Yes, that’s quite true, but …
I’m not sure if I agree …
Well, you have a point there, but …
Maybe, but don’t you think that …
