Hello there!

 

Você ja conhece a maneira mais fácil de concordar com alguém em inglês:

Me too! – Eu também!
Me either / neither! – Nem eu!

 

Em inglês temos algumas outras maneiras de concordar com alguém e deixar sua fala mais fluente e elaborada.

Como fazer?

Veja este exemplo:

I’m thirsty. – Estou com sede.

 

Você pode concordar usando o verbo auxiliar – no caso am também porque se trata de “eu” falando.

I am, too.

 

Ou você pode usar a forma so + verbo + sujeito:

So am I.

 

Perceba que a inversão do verbo (am) com o sujeito (I) não indica que é uma pergunta, ok?

 

Vejamos mais alguns exemplos com verbos auxiliares.

I should, too.

I would, too.

Agora, quando não temos verbos auxiliares (am, is, are, will, would, should, can etc), então usamos do, does e did, dependendo do tempo verbal em que a frase estiver.
