According to me ATAU In my Opinion?

Bacalah dengan nama Tuhanmu,_____________
“Seperlima orang yang ada, selalu menentang segalanya”. (Robert Kennedy)

Dear pembelajar,
Sering kita mendengar orang mengatakan according to me, bukan? Nah, sejak saya bagi ini, mudah-mudahan kita akan membiasakan diri menggunakan bahasa Inggris dengan semestinya.

A. Accoding to digunakan apabila sumber yang dirujuk adalah orang/sumber lain DILUAR SAYA:
  • according to Ade, English is difficult language
  • According to Darna English is not so difficult,
  • According to Salam, his boss is real tyrant (sangat kejam)
  • According to Ririn, her boss is so kind,
  • According to the timetable, we will have lunch at one o’clock,
  • According to the schedule , we will reach the hotel at 03.00 pm.
B. According to TIDAK digunakan untuk kata view (pandangan) ...atau opinion (pendapat), jadi untuk view dan opinion, penggunaannya adalah sbb:

  • in my opinion, English is impossible without practicing.
  • In her opinion, grammar is not important, but in my opinion, we should speak English right, we should learn English correctly.
  • In his opinion, money is not everything, what is your opinion? 
  • In government view, it is important to rise the price of gasoline, what do you think of this?
C. kita TIDAK mengatakan "according to my opinion", BUT "in my opinion."
