Damos inicio a nuestro curso de inglés en su nivel intermedio. En esta primera lección vamos a aprender cómo intercambiar opiniones en inglés. Aprenderás a preguntar a las personas sus opiniones y a dar tu propia opinión, ya sea que estés de acuerdo o en desacuerdo con tu interlocutor. En este caso, a manera de ejemplo, veremos cómo intercambiar opiniones sobre una película de guerra.
Upper intermediate - war film
In this lesson you will learn how to exchange opinions in English. We will talk about asking for people´s opinions, how to give your own and how to disagree with someone. Here are some examples:
"What did you think of the movie?" "I think It was brilliant".
We are now going to watch a short movie. Tow friend went to see a film, and now that it is just finished, they share their impression of the film. Listen to how they describe the movie.
Now let´s talk about the language of the movie. The friends do not agree with each other about the movie. One friend asks the other for her opinion. Do you remember what she said?
She said: "What did you think of the movie, Jen?"
We often used "think of" when we ask for an opinion. It is polite to use someone´s name when asking a question. If you do this, put the name ay the beginning or at the end of the question. "Jen, what did you think of the movie?" Or "What did you think of the movie, Jen?"
Her friend answered and she then asked: "How about you? What did you think?" "I think it was brilliant".
When you answer, you don´t need the word "of". There are many ways to agree or disagree with someone. In the movie you saw, a few useful expressions are used. The woman, Jen, did not like the movie. She used a light phrases to disagree. For example, she said: "I don´t know about that". "Huh, I guess so." "Really?" All of these are ways to suggest you have a different opinion, even if you don´t say it.
It is now your turn to practice speaking. I will show you part of the movie. Watch the people, then listen to me and repeat what I say.
"What did you think of the movie?"
"How about you? What did you think?"
"I don´t know about that"
"Huh, I guess so."
You have now practiced asking for opinions, and disagreeing politely.
"What did you think of the movie?" "I think it was brilliant."
"Really? I don´0t know about that."
