Stop saying " I think ", its old fashioned rather use these unique words to appear more professional.

Do you know there are other ways you can use to articulate the phrase " I THINK" without confusing your audience?

Grab your seat belt let's ride along in this English masterclass, as I will share some tips I learnt from my Diction teacher, Mrs. Jessica Okafor with you guys.

During my days as an undergraduate, one of my Lecturers abhors the use of "I think" in his class whenever you are answering his question.

He always scolds the students to express themselves like authority.

Most times, it's very pertinent to give your own view or perception about a particular thing.

It mustn't always be what others have to say. Your own view can make a difference, it can be the idea everyone is waiting to hear.

So you have to up your game in your communication skills.

Here are a few ways you can express yourself without employing the word, "I think"

💐From my point of view...

💐I believe...

💐As far as I can tell...

💐In my opinion...

💐I honestly believe that...

💐I reckon...

💐Honestly speaking...

💐I consider...

💐I feel...

💐As far as I'm concerned...

💐It seems to me...

💐I would say that...

💐I'd suggest that...

💐If I'm not mistaken...

💐In my view...

💐The essential point is...

💐It seems obvious that...

💐To my way of thinking...

💐In all honesty...

💐The way I see it...

💐I hope you got value from these suggested ideas or ways of expression?

Do share to help others upgrade their communication skills
