“Agree” vs “Agree With”

There is no difference in the meaning between these two.  For, in order to “Agree”, it is necessary to do it “With” another.  Therefore, the only difference is in the usage.

When we use “Agree With”, there needs to be a pronoun or object (usually a person… unless you happen to be in Wonderland) directly after it in the sentence.

To use “Agree” without the direct object, is usually as a statement in response to another, and the word “Agree” will be the last word in the sentence

“I agree with you, that we need to make learning English much more simple.”

“He said that we needed to make English more simple to learn.  I told him that, I agree.  And then we slapped high-five and did a little dance before running off into the sunset.”

The statement “I agree.” as a two-word sentence which stands on its own, is also classified as an Interjection.  The person does not need to say “I agree with you” because the person being spoken to, already comprehends that he (or she) is the one being spoken to.

And that’s that!  Pretty simple huh?

Have An Excellent Day!
