Q: Qual é a diferença entre oppose e against ?
A: @sallykyoko For the most part yes. 'against' is more like a state of being. For comparison:
'Would you like to eat?' 'No, I'm full.'
'Are you in favor of this law?' 'No, I'm against it.'

'oppose' is the action of being against something, where 'against' is used to show that you are in a state of being against something.

I hope that makes sense and isn't too confusing. There really isn't much difference so you can use them interchangeably.
