How to say yes

Of course, you can just say “yes” if you agree to something or want to give a positive reply. But did you know that there are other ways of saying “yes”?

Informal ways include: Yep, Sure, You bet, Sounds good, OK.

Formal ways include: Certainly, Of course, Definitely, Absolutely.

Sarcastic ways include: Yeah, yeah, yeah and Obviously.

Or you can just use sounds like Mhmm or Uh-huh.

Or use gestures like using the thumbs up sign or the okay sign.

However, I have to point out that you should always be careful when using gestures in other cultures. They can mean something totally different.
