    mind, view, opinion

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the correcthess of the following sentences?

    He gave me a piece of his mind. = He stated his views to me very bluntly.
    There was a meeting of our minds. = We were all on the same minds. = We all had the same opinion.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    He gave me a piece of his mind. = He stated his views to me very bluntly.

    It's more usual that the speaker refers to himself:
    I gave him a piece of his mind.: I told him (angrily) what I thought of him and his actions (i.e. my comments were highly unfavourable!)

    There was a meeting of our minds. = We were all on the of a same minds mind. = We all had the same opinion.
