    Default according to me- reported speech

    Hi,
    according to - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online


    ! Do not say 'according to me' or 'according to my opinion/point of view'. Say in my opinion In my opinion his first book is much better.

    I have a question about it. For example, a boy named Michael asks a question to Jim.

    Michael: What I have understood is that according to you, there is nothing to do, is that right, Jim?
    Olga: What did he said to you, Jim?
    Jim: He told me that what he understood is that according to me, there was nothing to do.

    Is the usage of according to me I have used in this example right?

    Thanks.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
