Written by Student Life, Tips & Tricks

When someone offer you something or share with you an idea about a particular thing, but you “don’t like it”. How could you express it to them verbally without hurting their feeling or showing a disrespectful manner? Using the wrong English expression or phrases might damage your relationship with other international friends, who you can only use English to communicate with them. You may even cause serious consequences when replying to strangers.
