• Let me make this crys­tal clear
  • Hold on!
  • I couldn’t agree more.
  • This is just ridicu­lous.
  • I think we can draw the fol­low­ing con­clu­sion…
  • You have hit the nail on the head because…
  • I’m try­ing to answer your ques­tion…
  • You must be jok­ing.
  •  May I just butt in here and…
  • It has become quite clear by now that…
  • Some­thing sim­i­lar hap­pened to me the oth­er day.
  • I see things total­ly dif­fer­ent­ly.
  • I can see your point.
  • I can­not accept that at all.
  • You’re absolute­ly right there.
  • This is real­ly beside the point.
  • I think you’ve missed the point com­plete­ly.
  • You must be kid­ding.
  • Do you real­ly mean to say that…
  • I have nev­er thought of that before.
  • This is just a cliché.
  • I see things in a total­ly dif­fer­ent light now.
  • I have read about that recent­ly.
  • I can’t fol­low you there, I’m afraid.
  •  I’m not with you there.
  • Let me give you anoth­er exam­ple.
  • To my mind…/I think…/In my opin­ion…
  • Of course, you are right in say­ing that… but…
  • On the one hand… on the oth­er hand…
  • The fact of the mat­ter is…
  • I hold the view that…
  • There are a num­ber of rea­sons…
  • first(ly)…
  • second(ly)…
  • third(ly)..
  • Let me see… I haven’t real­ly thought about this before.
  • Could you say that again? I didn’t quite catch that.
  • That’s an inter­est­ing idea, but…
  • I beg to dis­agree.
  • That’s an inter­est­ing ques­tion.
  • There is some com­mon ground between us here.
