How to agree or disagree in Spanish

If you have ever had an in-depth conversation or discussion with a Spanish person you will know just how heated they can become! Spanish people tend to be very opinionated and once you get in a discussion with them or if you overhear one you may think they are arguing with each other by the way they speak so loudly, wave their arms around and stamp their feet. However, they are not normally arguing, this is just their animated way of expressing themselves.

In this blog post we will look at how you can agree or disagree with someone’s opinion in Spanish.
