0:01 Welcome to Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.
0:07 In this lesson, we will see different ways of how to use the phrase ‘disagree with’.
0:18 Disagree with’ is a phrasal verb used to denote that someone has a different opinion from someone else about something.
0:27 That’s correct. It is also used to refer to a type of food that makes you feel slightly ill or uncomfortable.
0:34 Yes, that’s absolutely right Fred. For example: ‘Food made in mustard oil disagrees with me’.
0:42 Thanks for the example, Jenny.
0:43 Here is another one: ‘Most people strongly disagree with the way children are evaluated in schools, today’.
0:51 That’s right. We can also say: ‘I totally disagree with cruelty to animals’.
0:57 Thanks for another amazing example, Jenny. I think the meaning and usage of ‘disagree with’ is quite clear
1:05 Let’s see some sample conversations now.
1:14 Where were you, Ben?
1:16 I went shopping.
1:18 Wow! Shopping! Why did you go alone? You could have asked me to come with you.
1:22 I didn't ask you because you always disagree with my selection of clothes.
1:26 That’s right, Ben. I disagree with your selection because you don't pick the right stuff.
1:32 Well, it may not be the right stuff for you, but I like my choices. This time I wanted to buy something I like.
1:40 Alright. So, show me what you got.
1:43 Maybe later, Kelly. I don’t feel very well…
1:47 What’s wrong?
1:48 I think the shrimp platter I ate at the mall didn’t agree with me.
1:53 See?! That’s another reason you should call me when you go out! I know shrimp never agrees with you!
1:59 You’re right, Kelly…I can’t disagree with you…you always know what’s best.
2:11 I think you lied to me about why you didn't want to visit grandma’s house.
2:16 Why would I do that? I like going to grandma’s.
2:18 I don’t know. Maybe you disagreed with my plan
2:23 Why would I disagree with spending my holidays at grandma’s house? I was really busy preparing for my exams.
2:29 Alright. I’ll accept your excuse this time. But I don't want to hear any excuses next time.
2:35 I’ll definitely visit grandma after my exams.

3:08 I’m sorry, Ben. I disagree with you. I like working, and for me it’s fun.
3:15 I understand. Everyone’s got their own priorities. Anyway, try to come to the party.
3:21 Sure. Thanks for the invitation.
