  • I think. I think. I think.

  • This is one of the most common phrases in English.

  • But did you know that there are actually many different ways to say 'I think'?

  • What's up guys? My name is Shane and in today's video, you are going to learn 15 ways to say 'I think'.

  • Are you ready? Let's go.

  • The first phrase is: 'I reckon'.

  • 'I reckon' is a very informal phrase, which just means 'I think'.

  • It's used a lot in Australia and sometimes in England as well.

  • An example sentence could be: 'I reckon it's going to rain today.'

  • The second phrase is: 'in my opinion'.

  • An 'opinion' is just a thought or a belief.

  • So, this phrase just means 'my thought is ...'

  • It's a little bit formal, and it's not normally used between friends.

  • And an example sentence could be: 'In my opinion, pizza is the best food in the world.'

  • The third phrase is: 'I guess'.

  • 'I guess' just means 'you're not 100 percent sure'.

  • But you're just saying what you think or what you think will happen.

  • It's an informal phrase, and an example could be: 'I guess we're going to the party tonight.'

  • This means you're not 100 percent sure, but you'll probably go.

  • The fourth phrase is: 'I believe'.

  • 'Believe' means 'to think that something is true'.

  • It's a little bit formal, and it's not normally used in informal situations.

  • An example sentence could be: 'I believe that the best way to learn English is by watching English Understood on YouTube.'

  • The fifth phrase is: 'I feel'.

  • 'I feel' means you have a feeling about what you think.

  • Maybe you have no reason to think that way, but you have a feeling inside of you.

  • 'I feel' can be used in formal and informal situations.

  • And an example sentence could be: 'I feel that 2021 is going to be a great year.'

  • Maybe you have no reason to think that but you just have a feeling inside of you.

  • And phrase number six is: 'in my view'.

  • 'View' means the same as 'opinion'.

  • But 'in my view' is more formal than 'in my opinion'.

  • So this phrase is not normally used between friends.

  • An example sentence could be: 'In my view, I think climate change is a big problem.'

  • The seventh phrase is: 'from my perspective'.

  • 'Perspective' means 'a way of thinking', 'a way of seeing something'.

  • For example, I am an English teacher and a native English speaker.

  • So I look at English differently from someone who is learning English because I am looking at English from the eyes of a teacher.

  • But people who are learning English are looking at English from the eyes of a learner.

  • An example sentence could be: 'From my perspective, learning English to use English like a native speaker is the best way to learn.'

  • The eighth phrase is: 'the way I see it'.

  • 'The way I see it' means from where you are looking, how does it look?

  • What are your thoughts and opinions on it?

  • For example: if you were looking from here, what does it look like? What are your thoughts?

  • If you are looking from here, what does it look like? What are your thoughts?

  • This is a more formal phrase, and it's not normally used between friends.

  • An example sentence could be: 'The way I see it, it was a good decision.'

  • The ninth phrase is: 'it seems to me that ...'

  • This is similar to the last phrase.

  • It means from where you are looking, what do you think? What can you see?

  • What are your thoughts? What are your opinions?

  • It's also a more formal phrase, and an example sentence could be: 'It seems to me that he is a good person.'

  • The tenth phrase is: 'as far as I'm concerned'.

  • This is a more formal phrase, and it just means 'I think' or 'I believe'.

  • And it can sometimes be used to disagree with someone.

  • So for example, let's pretend someone says, 'climate change isn't a big problem.'

  • You can say, 'As far as I'm concerned, it is a big problem.'

  • The eleventh phrase is: 'I would say'.

  • This means if you ask my opinion about something, 'I think that ...'

  • This phrase can also be used to show that you're not really sure about something.

  • It can be used in informal and formal situations.

  • An example sentence could be: 'I would say that learning English is easy.'

  • The twelfth phrase is: 'I consider'.

  • 'I consider' means that you have strong thoughts or feelings about something.

  • It's more of a formal phrase and not normally used between friends.

  • An example sentence could be: 'I consider eating vegetables to be very important.'

  • The thirteenth phrase is: 'from my point of view'.

  • This is similar to the phrase, 'from my perspective'.

  • It means from where you are, what do you see? What do you feel? What do you think?

  • It's a more formal phrase, and an example sentence could be: 'From my point of view, you can't win this game.'

  • The fourteenth phrase is: 'as far as I can tell'.

  • This phrase is used when you have information about something, and then with that information, you make an opinion about something.

  • You look at something and then you make an opinion about it.

  • An example sentence could be: 'As far as I can tell, you're not losing weight because you're eating too many hamburgers.'

  • The fifteenth and final phrase is: 'if you ask me'.

  • This phrase means exactly what it sounds like.

  • If you ask me, 'I think that ...'

  • This phrase can be used in informal and formal situations.

  • And an example sentence could be: 'If you ask me, that dress looks good on you.'
