Phrases like “I think” or “in my opinion” clearly show that you have an opinion and not a fact. Use: This is one of the most used expressions. First, listeners can know that you understand their point of view. Second, after “but” you can give your negative opinion.

Finally, I think it is important to be able to justify why you agree or disagree with someone. That is why it is equally important to be able to express their opinion correctly.

So if you look at the following list, try combining one of the 4 expressions of the first level that are one of the different expressions of the second level. For example: (1) I fear (2) I do not share their point of view. It is a firmer, but more formal, way to express your disagreement. That is another way of saying that you are completely in agreement with someone.
