Agree with / on / to

Can 'agree with' be used for things (opinion)? Or must we use 'agree on'?
There are many ways to use the verb 'agree', and they can mean slightly different things:
agree with somebody (on something) (= have the same opinion)
We agreed with
I agree with
Note that the verb 'agree' can be both transitive or intransitive
. So in this example, you may also say 'I agree
' and the meaning is the same.
agree on something (to decide something together)
We agreed on
the date of the test.
agree to something / do something (to accept a suggestion or idea)
We agree to
Mrs Lee agreed to
postpone the test.
Do you agree that English is so very interesting?
