Are you sure that...?

Giving reasons

The reason why... is that

.... and so I think that...

Defending one's opinion

Yes.. but what I really mean is...

what I'm trying to say is...

On the contrary, I....

what you said is really an argument...

for my point of view.  I feel...

Praising

... is/are great/wonderful/fabulous

l've never...  a more interesting/better than...

is the best... I know...

... is the most beautiful... I've ever seen

Stating whether something is right or wrong

  • Hi, Selvakumar!

    It would be more interesting if you could give an example (sentence) for each phrase. Perhaps you'd like to add your voice ;-)

    Now, alternatively, you can ask the visitors of this blog to write their own examples in the comment box. These are merely my humble suggestions that I feel could make your blog intriguing and effective. Thank you!

    P.S. Nice blog!
