I've never think about difference between theses two words before. the difference is very little.
I think "opinion" is stronger than "avis".
I use "opinion" to speak about what someone thinks about an important or a general subjet. I use "avis" to speak about what someone thinks about a question or in a discussion.
Une opinion politique.
Une opinion religieuse.
Je suis de ton avis, on ne devrait pas sortir avec les cheveux mouillés.
ok. it will b easy to distinguish the two. Tx
