Hello everyone, the last time I disagreed on something was when i and my wife had different thoughts about the groceries buying budget.I had my own list in mind while she had her own, but when it came to the real budget on the list , we had to choose which item on the list had to go away., I just never agreed on the ideas of removing or trimming the number of items from my list to balance the budget, likewise, she didn't like that to happen to hers.

Desagreeing and agreeing its important. I learned how to desagrre in a frendly maner

In the last time, I disagreed with my big brother, he was wanting make a business in tourism field but I'm not convinced by that idea, after so that the covid-19 happened and everything stopped around the world, then he lost all his money.

The last time I disagree with someone was when I was talking about politics. My friend doesn't have the same opinion as me.

The last time that I disagreed with is my friend. At that time, we were doing a presentation. But I think we disagreed because we didn't understand each other!

Dear Team, what do you mean in this phrase : there's just a bit too much going on.

Hello Momocompanyman,

Paul means that the design is not clean and simple, but rather distracting because there are many elements -- for example, perhaps there are too many colours or too many lines. 'too much' refers to those design elements and 'going on' just means something like 'there are' here.

Does that make sense?

All the best,
