  • In this lesson, we will see different ways of how to use the phrasedisagree with’.

  • 'Disagree with' is a phrasal verb used to denote that someone has a different opinion from someone else about something.

  • That’s correct. It is also used to refer to a type of food that makes you feel slightly ill or uncomfortable.

  • Yes, that’s absolutely right Fred. For example: ‘Food made in mustard oil disagrees with me’.

  • Thanks for the example, Jenny.

  • Here is another one: ‘Most people strongly disagree with the way children are evaluated in schools, today’.

  • That’s right. We can also say: ‘I totally disagree with cruelty to animals’.

  • Thanks for another amazing example, Jenny. I think the meaning and usage ofdisagree withis quite clear

  • Let’s see some sample conversations now.

  • Where were you, Ben?

  • I went shopping.

  • Wow! Shopping! Why did you go alone? You could have asked me to come with you.

  • I didn't ask you because you always disagree with my selection of clothes.

  • That’s right, Ben. I disagree with your selection because you don't pick the right stuff.

  • Well, it may not be the right stuff for you, but I like my choices. This time I wanted to buy something I like.

  • Alright. So, show me what you got.

  • Maybe later, Kelly. I don’t feel very well

  • What’s wrong?

  • See?! That’s another reason you should call me when you go out! I know shrimp never agrees with you!
