Language  covered in this lesson:

Introducing disagreement: I know what you mean, but… That’s not entirely true. I’m afraid I’ll have to disagree, Yes, but don’t you think that…

Qualify something someone has just said: Mind you… Well, actually… I know what you mean but… Certainly not… but…, Perhaps not so much…but…

Add something: Well, actually… Mind you,… Besides that,…..

Changing the subject: Anyway, Let’s move on shall we? Anyhow,…
