Can someone explain me in what cases and how I should agree and disagree with someone's opinon I know that there are two options to agree with someone's opinion "Me too" and "So do/have/am I(or another form of these verbs depending on context)". And as I know I can say "Neither I" if I want to disagree with someone's opinion.

You are correct. Examples: To Think in Agreement: Person A: "I really like bananas." Person B: "Me too! So do I" (I also like bananas) To Be: Person A: "I am an engineer." Person B: "Me too; so am I!" (I am also an engineer) To Have Done: Person A: "I climbed Mount Fuji in Japan." Person B: "Me too! So have I!" (I also climbed that mountain) In The Negative: Person A: "I really do not like bananas." Person B: "Neither do I," or "I don't either." (I also do not like bananas) Person A: "I am not an engineer." Person B: "Neither/nor am I!" (I am also not an engineer) Person A: "I have not yet climbed Mount Fuji in Japan." Person B: "Neither have I," or "I haven't either." (I also have not yet climbed that mountain) I hope this helps!

Actually, when you use 'Neither have/do/am I' you are also expressing agreement with your interlocutor's opinion.
