    Default I strongly oppose to school violence.

    I know that oppose can take object directly since it is a transitive verb

    but this morning I found below sentence on the web, ESL site by a Korean teacher!


    'I strongly oppose to school violence'

    Is the above sentence grammatical?


    I think we don't need 'to' in there.

    Also i think we can say

    'I'm strongly opposed to school violence'.


    Please brighten me up.
