How to Say What You Think in English | How to State Your Opinion | How to Express Your Opinion

Sometimes it's difficult to say what you are thinking in a foreign language. I've studied other languages and I understand how hard it is to clearly communicate your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and opinions.

 

Here are a few phrases that will make it easier for you to really tell people what you think, so that they understand you and you don't sound rude.

 

1. If you ask me ...

 

2. As far as I can tell ...

 

3. As far as I'm concerned ...

 

4. I feel like / that ...

 

5. Honestly, ...

 

6. Personally, ...

 

7. It's my belief that ...

 

8. To me ...

 

9. I reckon ...

 

10. I can't lie ...

 

11. In all honesty, ...

 

12. From my point of view ...

 

13. In my opinion ...

 

14. The way I see it ...

 

15. It seems to me that ...

 

16. I honestly believe that ...

 

17. I would say that ...

 

18. I consider it to be ...

 

Now let's practice using these phrases in real situations!

This is a short list of English language words that are commonly used to link the subject of a sentence with a predicate (or subject complement). This is referred to as "copula".
