Synonyms of "Opinion" and their differences

Q: opinions ve feedback arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Feedback is like "response." So in this sentence, feedback is better. People don't have to ask for you to give your opinion, but they will ask for feedback if they want it
Q: I'll stick to my opinion anyway. ve I'll stand by my opinion anyway. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: 'Stick to' and 'Stand by' are not synonymous. Although they can be used interchangeably in certain contexts, there are distinct differences between the insinuations.

Sticking to your opinion implies that you're not changing your mind and you're staying with the same opinion you had.

As for standing by your opinion, though it also means that you're not going to change your opinion, it implies that you're going to fervently support it.

The former comes across as more passive than the latter.

Eg.
Say whatever you want but I'll still stick to my opinion that X is better than Y. (proceeds to say little)
vs.
I will stand by my opinion that X is better than Y and I will debate you on that. (proceeds to argue / take a stand on the issue)
Q: opinion ve view arasındaki fark nedir?
A: An opinion is what you think about something/someone, and a view is how you see something/someone. This might sound a little confusing, and the two words are definitely similar. You will learn the difference better from experience I think.
Q: in my opinion ve to my mind arasındaki fark nedir?
A: This may be helpful: http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/81366/using-to-my-mind

They are synonymous. It is more common (in my opinion) to find "to my mind" in the middle of a sentence. These four sentences sound natural to me:

"In my opinion, that was the best movie of the year."
"That was, in my opinion, the best movie of the year."
"That was the best movie of the year in my opinion."
"That was, to my mind, the best movie of the year."

The other possibilities, where "to my mind" is at the beginning or the end of the sentence do not sound natural to me.

Additionally, I almost never use "to my mind" (in any form: spoken, written, casual, or formal). I believe it is more common in other dialects. My dialect is of the Midwest/Southern US.
Q: to agree with your opinion ve to agree to your opinion arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Agree to your opinion" sounds unnatural to me.

I usually hear "agree to" with verbs, (e.g. "I agreed to run the event"). The only thing I can think of with a noun is "I agreed to the terms of service" or "I agreed to the terms of the contract."

Other questions about "Opinion"

Q: When I want to say:

Q: Could you help make my opinion better?

Question: Do you think Japan should make English as the official language?

My answer: I disagree. Even though English is widely spoken in the world and it's convenient if we can speak it, the adoption may cause great confusion. In addition, if we stop using Japanese, it will disappear, which we should avoid and we must cherish our language
bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: "I don't think so. Even though English is widely spoken throughout the world and it would be convenient if we could speak it, it's adoption in Japan might cause great confusion. In addition, if we stop using Japanese, it will disappear, which we should avoid. We must cherish our language."

You shouldn't say, "I disagree," because there is nothing to agree with. If the question was, "Do you agree that Japan should..." or, "Someone said Japan should...", THEN you could write "I disagree." But, the question was "Do you think..." so your answer should be something like, "Yes, I think Japan should..." or "No, I don't think Japan should..."
Q: Could you help me to make the opinion better?

Question: Do you think elementary school students should use sharp pencil?

My answer: I disagree. Sharp pencils aren't suit for elementary school students to use, because the leads tend to break easily, and this leads to distract students from focusing to the lesson the teacher is giving.
A: To fix up your statement a little bit I would say this, “I disagree. Sharp pencils aren’t suitable for elementary school students to use, because the lead tends to break easily. This would then have the students distracted from focusing on the lesson the teacher is giving.”
You can even argue that the sharp pencils can cause the students to harm each other.
Hope this helps :)
