SHOWING CERTAINTY, DOUBT, REPETITION, CONCERN, AND SURPRISE
Kita terkadang merasa yakin atau ragu tentang sesuatu/ berita yang kita ucapkan ataupun yang kita dengar dari orang lain. Untuk menunjukkan rasa keyakinan kita tentang sesuatu yang kita ucapkan kita bisa menggunakan contoh kalimat Expression of certainty seperti “I am sure that I will pass the test”, kalimat tersebut untuk menunjukkan bahwa kamu yakin dapat menyelesaikan test dengan baik. Ketika kita ingin menanyakan tentang kepastian seseorang, misalnya teman, kita bisa menggunakan contoh kalimat Asking for certainty seperti “Are you sure that you will pass the test?”. Namun bila teman kita merasa tidak yakin, kalimat untuk menunjukkan rasa ketidakyakinan tersebut dengan menggunakan Expression of Doubt seperti “I’m not sure that I will pass the test”.

Terkadang seseorang tidak mendengar apa yang baru diucapkan oleh lawan mainnya, kemudian meminta untuk mengulangi apa yang baru saja diucapkan, maka bisa menggunakan contoh kalimat Asking for repetition seperti ”I’m sorry.
