Different Ways of Expressing Agreement in English

Different Ways of Expressing Agreement in English
English is a language that is synonymous to synonym. Its richness in synonym cannot be doubted as a word in English can have more than ten synonyms. 

Today we are going to look at some ways of expressing agreement or agreeing in English. Before we go on let's look at this conversation between Tammy (T) and Sammy (S) as they used these different forms of expressing agreement.

T: Morning, Sammy. Howdy?
S: I’m fine, thank you. I’m getting ready to go see a movie at the cinema.
T: Wow! Can I come? I also like seeing movies
S: Sure! After seeing the movie we can go get some meat pie and ice cream from the eatery near the cinema. I really love ice cream.
T: So do I! But I love the vanilla ice cream because of its unique sweetness.
S: Me too! When are we leaving because I also like being on time?
T: So do I. We will be leaving soon.

From the conversation above, you can see that "I also like", "me too" and "so do I" are used to express agreement. The speakers used them in different ways and at different time to show their agreement to each other’s statements.

I also like” means that speakers have the same likes. It may also mean that we are stating that we have more than just one like. For example:
I like chocolate cakes but I also like vanilla cakes.

Me too” and “so do I” have similar meanings in English. However, we normally use “me too” in a more informal way in English and “so do I” in a formal manner when we want to agree with someone about something.
