Talking Against a Proposal

Now that we’ve discussed how to suggest a plan or make a proposal and how to express that you are in favour of it, it’s time to learn a few phrases to express that you are against it. I’ll start with very formal ones (F), towards semi-formal (SF) and informal (I) phrases:

  • I see no valid reason for supporting the proposal to… (F)
  • I am (wholly) opposed to the proposal to … (F)
  • I’m sure it’s not possible to … (SF)
  • I can see many problems in the proposal to … (I)

Let’s practise the previously learnt phrases for the following proposal ideas:

  • banning smoking
  • supporting a local strike
  • abolishing prisons
  • closing down factories which cause pollution
