So Do I and Neither Do I – Agreeing with Someone in Conversation

Watch this video to learn how to agree when a friend or someone else tells you something.

You’ll learn how to say:

  • So do I.
  • I do, too.
  • Neither do I.
  • I don’t, either.

And of course, the most important thing, when to say each of them.

Things to do after you’ve watched the video:

Practise with a Friend nod

Get your friend or your mother to tell you things they like or don’t like to do.

Agree with them in the way that you’ve just learnt.

Pay attention to whether the statement that your friend/mother/father/child says is positive or negative.

More Ways to Agree

First of all, I hope you understand that this lesson is only about a certain way of agreeing. There are many other ways of agreeing; mainly they depend on the grammar of the sentence that the other person is telling you. For example, you can also agree with I am, too, or I can, or I would, too. Or I wouldn’t, I can’t and I am not, for negatives. The way to agree with do and don’t is pretty basic and you will need to use it a lot, so that’s why I taught you this first.

nod3Ways to Disagree

The second thing that you need to know is that you can also disagree in a great number of ways. You can say Oh, but I do, when someone tells you something they don’t like, for example. I’ll explain that subject to you in another article, okay?

And now you can do another quiz to practise your knowledge.
