Hello, everyone and welcome back to English with Lucy. Today I am going to give you21 advanced alternatives for I think. I think that I think is very boring, overused, and it’s just repetitive. In debates, in English classes, in conversation, we are always asked to give our opinion. And more often than not, I hear my students saying,

“I think,” blah, blah, blah, blah,”

I think,” blah, blah, blah, blah”

or I don’t think,” blah, blah, blah, blah.

If you really want to show that you have an incredible, and profound, and advanced vocabulary, then you need to find some other ways of saying I think so. I have got 25 advanced alternatives, ranging from formal to informal.

So this post is really going to help you with your vocabulary, but if you want to improve your listening skills and your pronunciation skills even further, then I highly recommend the special method of reading an actual book whilst listening to the audiobook version on Audible. It might sound complicated, but it’s not, and it has helped so many of my English students. What you have to do is take a book that you have already read in English or a book that you would like to read in English.
