"The English Adventurer"

Today you’ll find out what English phrase you should eliminate from your vocabulary and you’ll get 5 or 6 new phrases to replace it with when you agree with someone in English.

Do you use the phrase “Very well” when you want to say that you understand or that you agree?

If you are using this phrase it sounds old fashioned, stiff, formal, and out of date.

There are some better phrases that you can use.

Instead we recommend the following phrases:

  • “Ok that’s fine.”
  • “Ok, agreed”
  • “Ok got it.”
  • “Ok sounds good.”
  • “Ok sounds great.”
  • “See you then.”
  • “Yeah that works.”
  • “That’s cool.” you looking for a professional, native English teacher online?
