We've discussed before how very important it is to be able to express your opinions in Italian. Phrases like secondo me are incredibly useful to know.
But once everyone's aired their opinions in true Italian style, what's next?
If you want to agree or disagree, there's a simple way of expressing that.
– Hai ragione e ti sosterrò.
– You're completely justified
– E qui ha ragione.
– She has a point there
If nothing else, this phrase will help pacify an irate Italian neighbour or agitated father-in-law, and easily ends tiresome arguments about things you really can't muster an opinion on.
And once you start using it, you'll no doubt start hearing it crop up in conversations all the time.
– Vedremo se hai ragione
– Let's see if you're right.
– Penso che ha ragione
– I think she's right
Of course, if you're really going to argue like an Italian, you'll also need this version:
– Ho ragione, vedrai!
– I'm right, you'll see!
