Cara Sopan Menyatakan Ketidaksetujuan Terhadap Teman

Di kelas, kita perlu mengungkapkan gagasan dan berkontribusi dalam diskusi. Memang lebih mudah untuk sepakat daripada berbeda pendapat. Tapi jika kamu mempunyai gagasan atau pendapat yang berbeda, bagaimanakah cara mengungkapkannya dengan sopan? Penting halnya agar diskusi tersebut tidak berubah menjadi argumen, bahkan pertengkaran, yang bisa merusak pertemanan kalian.

Script 1:

Ben: I think book stores are outdated. In the near future, everyone will buy and read e-books online.

Charlotte: Hmmm..  I am not sure I agree with you. Paper books will always have its share of market. Some people like the touch and smell of paper books.

Ben: Have you considered that you can buy paper books online as well?

Charlotte: Yes, it’s true, but book stores have more value than displaying and selling books. They create communities for book lovers.

Ben: I respect your opinion, but going to book stores is inconvenient for most people.

Charlotte: That’s true, but we could look at it from another perspective.  If the government builds more book stores in the city, and makes them more accessible to the public, people will be more willing to go to books stores.

Ben: Yes, you have a point there. Building more book stores may also encourage people to read more as well.
