    agree with one's opinion

    Dear teachers,

    I agree with you. (correct)
    I agree on the judgement. (correct)
    I agree to term. (correct)

    But is "I agree with your opinion " correct? Shouldn't it be "I agree with you" or "I agree to your opinion"?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    There's nothing wrong with "I agree with your opinion". There are often several ways of saying the same thing, and this is very common.

    "I agree to your opinion" is not common. "Agree to" is normally used when you are giving your assent, permission, eg. "I agree to your increasing his salary." This doesn't just mean that you agree with the person's opinion that his salary should be increased. It is giving the first person permission to increase his salary.
