Yeah Nah

Yeah Nah

Another useful learning from my time in New Zealand is an expression: “Yeah Nah.” You will find it falling into your conversation quicker than you can say, “Kiwi.” Yeah nah is a way of expressing your affirmation of what the person has asked and then disagreeing. This is such a great way to remain positive even when you want to deliver a negative response. I have been using it for a week and it works.

This video drives the message home beautifully.
