German Phrases if you disagree with somebody

It can be tricky to tell somebody you disagree with her or him. If you want to be polite and diplomatic, you first agree partly with the other person before you say your own opinion. If there is no way that you agree with the other person, there are ways to tell her or him politely that you disagree. And then there are situations where you find totally unacceptable what the other person said and you feel like contradicting very emotionally. In this overview, you find the right German phrases for all of these situations.

Jemandem zu widersprechen, kann heikel (=schwierig) sein. Wenn Du höflich und diplomatisch sein willst, gibst Du erst Deinem Gesprächspartner Recht und äußerst dann Deine Meinung.

Und dann gibt es Situationen, in denen man eine Äußerung vollkommen unmöglich findet und ganz emotional widerspricht. In dieser Übersicht findest Du die passenden Sätze für alle diese Situationen.
