Hello everyone and welcome back to the Art of Business English. A happy new year to all my listeners. I hope your year has got off to a great start and you are full of vision and ideas. I released an episode on New Year’s Day for goal setting, I hope that you have listened to that episode and have your 2019 goal setting plan underway.

In this week’s episode we are going to look at improving our communications skills in English. Do you attend meetings regularly in English? Are there times when you need to disagree with what someone is proposing? Does the thought of trying to disagree with your peers in English make you a little nervous? Well, if that sounds like you then don’t despair, for today I am going to show you a number of ways that you can disagree in English.

In today’s episode I am going to cover the following:

  1. How to disagree politely
  2. How to disagree firmly
  3. Some use of these expressions in context
