    Smile On some points or at some points

    Hello Everyone.
    My friend and I talked about something. Everyone brought some points. But I could not completely agree with my friend. Can I say, " You are right, but I don't agree with you on some points or you are right but I don't agree with you at some points."
    Thanks in advance

    Use "on".

    Re: On some points or at some points

    Keep in mind that it's incorrect to say "Everyone brought some points." I think you mean "Everyone brought up some points," or better yet "We both brought up some good points." You can't have "everyone" if there are only two people present, and usually you can't just bring up "some points" without specifying what's significant about them.
